I am a linux newbie - having used windows all my life. I have install Ubuntu 6.06 DVD version - and when I plug in my WPN111 wireless usb dongle into my pc, it shows in the device manager, but alas - no wifi. After some googling, I discovered that:
- WPN111 has an atheros chipset
- That there were 2 ways to get it to work - ndiswrapper & madwifi
- that madwifi did not support USB
So therefor, I have to use ndiswrapper. The guide on their wiki is way to hard for me to understand - as a total begginer - however The MadWifi Guide
I can understand and do.
I would be very grateful if anyone could give me a hand in this...
Thanks in advance,
