Eee PC> No wireless in Mint and Fedora


Hi!
In our family we have an Eee PC / in Windows7 and openSUSE 11.4 everything is working. In Mint 10 Gnome 64 and 32 bit and Fedora 14 Gnome 32 bit we don t have wireless with persistent USB. iwconfig > no wireless and Networkmanager does not show wireless.

Do you know what wireless chipset the Eee has? What model Eee is it?

Try using EasyPeasy, its Ubuntu based, and configured for the Asus Eee PC, it has out of the box wireless and webcam support (usually), and if it doesn't, its easy to install.

Hi Alfredo, the terminal command 'lspci' will tell you exactly which wireless chipset you have. You can use this information to search for answers.

ps Why do you need 4 operating systems on your netbook?

$ ifconfig

Your wireless card is Broadcom BCM4313.

Mint (actually Ubuntu but Mint is based on Ubuntu):

Hi snowpine!
Thank you very much! Mint wireless is working. I first intend to install Mint on a MicroSD card (vx6 is able to boot from cardreader).
Fedora I will try next weekend (and report).
