Exclamation Trouble withRedhat 9.0 and wireless internet.


A friend of mine has recently installed Linux 9.0 which I gave her. Her computer is a Dell and it uses a wireless connection to a main computer in her house. She cannot figure her linux to connect to the internet even though all connections are secure in the back of her computer. Will she have to use a direct connection?

<quote> Will she have to use a direct connection? </quote> She can use direct connection if she cant make wireless work although I dont see and reason why it would not. Good luck with it and post back.

Its a Compaq computer, but the wireless card in it is a Dell TrueMobile card, BAH! She says that you have to install the drivers from the company CD. Because it is a windows installer it will not work on linux.
