just can't get on my wireless lan


I have tried many things to get my mn520 microsoft wireless card communicating with my router. I know the router is set right (WEP enabled), and I even modified the etc/pcmcia/config with the card, version, and bind info, but I still can't access the internet!

I also initially tried to install the driver with ndiswrapper and I think I did it right. But nothing happened. I checked the network interfaces tab in mepis os center and wlan0 is down.

I noticed that while booting a message appears stating something like "another pump may be running". What is a pump and how do I fix that? I have a feeling that it is related to my network woes.

Please don't hijack other people's threads. It is confusing and your question doesn't get proper exposure. Consider starting a new thread.

Well, did you have a look at the link I posted? The procedure should be identical only the last part will be a bit different. I Gnome you go to System > Network to configure the card once the driver has been installed, in KDE you'll need to look elsewhere. I'm afraid that I can't be any more specific considering I'm not a KDE user. I would say, just search the KDE control center, there's bound to be a heading that covers networking.

What do you mean, install firefox? Isn't it installed by default?

It would be helpful if you stated the distribution your are using.

Well, again, I'm not familiar with Kubuntu but it seems to me that you should be able to find it if you open your Smart package manager. You could also go to the firefox site and install it manually, that would work too but it wouldn't integrate as well with the rest of the system without putting in some extra effort.

Debian repositories don't have Firefox due to a pointless disagreement with Mozilla.

Check to see if you have Iceweasel installed - it's the same program under a new name.
