What Linux distribution are you running? Ubuntu 7.10 will support many wireless cards out of the box.

I have two wireless laptops running linux. One has a dlink card that worked out of the box. The other has a netcomm that needed the windows driver added.

Works well.

Atheros and Intel (2200 and 3945 IIRC) cards both work very well with drivers being available.

Since the OP doesn't include any information about his card this seems to be more of a troll than anything else...

Edit: it looks like the OP is having problems with Broadcom drivers, which are a real pain. I can sympathize, but belittling people is not going to make anyone want to help you...

22 posts and just about all are abusive. If you are really interested in using linux then I'd suggest a different wireless chipset and/or some research.

Otherwise you can download that other OS as you suggested earlier...

This CRSN poster has received a lot of helpful advice. His abusive attitude is offensive. I suggest that posters simply ignore his posts from now on.

If it isn't vulgar, what does CRSN stand for. I'm sure it doesn't stand for corrosion or Coastal Resource Sharing Network. Never mind, I didn't notice that was his username.
