How do I connect wirelessly to my router?
Hi, I just installed SUSE Linux 10.1 onto my new laptop and i'm wondering how I am going to be able to connect wirelessly to my router.
You see, the laptop I'm on, Compaq's Presario V2000, has been designed for Windows XP/Vista. The keyboard is for Windows, the sound buttons I think was for the Windows (or Hp) sound software (a driver, I think), and the wireless indicator (another on/off button) was most likely for Hp's wireless driver (for Windows only, as I have dishearteningly found just a couple minutes ago). I actually called Hp/Compaq's Tech Support and this guy told me I couldn't even get rid of Windows Xp because of the computer's "configuration" (as he put it)... I don't think he knew much about what he was talking about. Well, despite his discouraging remarks, I hung up on that guy tried to do it regardless of this computer's "configuration".
So, I went on Hp's main site, looked for downloadable drivers and software for my type of notebook, and, as expected, i found only drivers for Windows.
I was wondering if any one else had the same experience as I have had with Winows-designed computers. I was wondering if anyone could help me out, maybe hook me up with some nice, free software.
Your help is greatly appreciated,
