Slackware 13 and Wireless


I have just installed slackware 13 on an old machine I am bringing back into use. As I have a spare Linksys wmp54g card I would like to try to get the wireless networking in place. From reading the forum the relevant advice seems to be fairly old (2004-2006). I wonder if anyone can advise me what the current steps would be?

Have you tried searching for a solution? Chances are the answers are already on here, if not then google.

'Configuring your network in Slackware' is Alien_Bob's excellent article on the way network cards are configured in Slackware. Loads of internal reference links for Ethernet & Wireless.

Just a few useful links;

SlackwareŽ Essentials
SlackwareŽ Basics
Linux Documentation Project
Rute Tutorial & Exposition
Linux Command Guide
Bash Reference Manual
Advanced Bash-Scripting Guide
Linux Newbie Admin Guide
LinuxSelfHelp
Getting Started with Linux

These links and others can be found at 'Slackware-Links' .
More than just SlackwareŽ links!
