Best distro...

Well, i tried pclinuxOS, Suse, Fedora, Dreamlinux, (X,K)Ubuntu, Mandriva(One), Slackware, Knopixx(live) and none of them made my INTEL PRO Wireless 3945abg properly connect to internet. No problems with Ethernet card.

Also tried to install ndiswrapper and iwlwifi. results? 0 installs=0 connections

My wireless router is a Belkin N and my HP Desktop with a Belkin N wireless card connects perfectly to internet with no problems

Thanks in advance

Is the router setup to allow anything but N to work? Most distro's should be able to handle that card out of the box without a problem, so I suspect it is either a misconfiguration in the router, or the computer's wireless settings.
