I am currently running RedHat 9.0 (2.4.20-8) on a Compaq Armada 7400 (Pentium II; this would be i686, correct?) laptop, and am desperately trying to get a wireless NIC to work.
I currently have a Linksys WPC11 v.2 NIC, and yes I have seen many setups for this card on the Net. Unfortunately, none of them seem to work for me. (I bought an SMC 2632W card today, but haven't had any luck with this one, either.)
Does anyone know a setup that absolutely will work for this card?
Also, does anyone have any recommendations on NICs that are natively supported; that is, where I don't have to jump through hoops to get them running?
I know I'm probably asking a lot here, but it's difficult to learn anything about Linux when I can't even get on the network without switching back to an MS OS.
I will greatly appreciate any help I can get on this.
