Drivers for wireless network cards


Hi All ,

Where can I find drivers for wireless cards and ethernet cards . While installing in my PC the drivers for the lan card got installed automatically . But while installing in one of the laptops the drivers for the LAN card were not instaled .

I am in need of drivers for Cisco 350 pcmcia and Cisco Aironet 802.11 a/b/g cards in particular.

One more question is what is equalent of "windows device manager "
in Linux .(not sure if this question is right?)

My question is basically which application in linux detects any new hardware added to a PC .

Iam using Redhat enterprise linux , kernel 2.6.9-5

I read in one of the forums that we need the information from /sbin/lspci or /sbin/cardctl/ident

I am not aware of how to get the required info from that file (lspci).
I was not able to view the file in any of the text editors . The file seems to be encrypted . How to get the required info from the file .



Regards
Jagan

As near as I can tell, drivers for those cards are included in the kernel, and should work. I'm not sure if they're in 2.6.9, tho.

To get the output of lspci and lsmod, both of which would be helpful, you have to open a terminal window and type the commands at the prompt.
