I just successfully installed Linux Mint 10 on an Acer laptop with an "Intel(R) WiFi Link 5100 AGN, REV=0x54" which seems OK.
Here's the output of standard commands:
The problem is that after (apparently) successfully connecting to a nearby hotspot that I know works (no problem under Vista), I never get to its webpage where the user is expected to input their login+password
: Chromium just spins... and gives up with the familiar "This webpage is not available."
BTW, I'm running 2.6.35-22 and the Intel drivers are supposed to have been included in Linux
Does someone know if something else must be done after connecting to a wifi hotspot?
Thank you for any help.
