Sabrent PCI-G802 Drivers for Slackware


I am looking for a driver to use with the Sabrent PCI-G802 WiFi Ethernet card on Slackware. I found a link about this card on LinuxQuestions but the URL mentionned are no longer valid. Slackware does not seem to recognise the card on installation.

Thank you, Yves Plasse.

Cool

I finally found that Linux Slackware 13.0 does support this card and sees the RT61 chipset on the installation. I did not have to install another driver. I just had to browse this forum to find how to configure a WiFi network using ifconfig, iwconfig and dhclient.
Thanks, Yves Plasse.
