I am not a complete newbie but stuck with installing my wireless card...
I have downloaded and install some drivers and here are the information I got after:
Atheros Communications Inc. AR242x 802.11abg Wireless PCI Express Adapter (Rev 01)
wlan0 Link encap:ETHERNET hwdaddr: 00:22:68:92:6b:4b
up broadcast multicasst mtu:1500 metric:1
(then all the fields to 0)
wlan0 IEEE 802.11 ESSID:"" mode:managed firstname.lastname@example.org access point: not associatied
(and a bunch of information to 0 or uninteresting I guess)
I have never used the wifi on linux so I am not even sure that I have understood how to connect to a wifi network ... but I have installed something called wifi-radar and it does not detect anything!
I also have tried to install madwifi to make it work but after 10 different tutorial I GAVE UP... nothing ever works, and the official website does not even work...
I would appreciate any help!
ps: I forgot to mention that I am on a Acer Aspire One, here is the main tutorial I have followed http://wiki.debian.org/DebianAcerOne...non-freedriver
