Accesing wireless net connection in Slackware 10


Hello, I recently installed Slackware 10.0 and am trying to access the internet over a wireless network, I have a linksys network card. I have been playing around with netconfig, but haven't gotten anywhere. I also can't seem to connect to Swat. Also, the connection is being shared from a router on a WinXP comp, and it is a DSL connection. Anyone familiar with this process.

Thanks in advance.

First off, welcome to LQ!

Secondly, Look into "ndiswrapper" (ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net) -- a very easy-to-use Wireless config / setup tool. Look at the supported chipset list and download the correct driver. You should be up and running in no time.

ach, I'm not sure that ndiswrapper is the solution, I ran through the instructions, and everything seemed to work perfectly, but still not able to get the connection. attempts at ping get "network unreachable". I can use the internet just fine from the same computer while in Windows.

Hmmm, I tried installing some other drivers as well, in case I had gotten the wrong one for some reason, but there is no hardware detected for those. The first driver installed detects the card seemingly, but I still can't get it to work.

Anyone have any ideas?

Networking is...well I'll just say its far from my specialty
