Ok I just installed Mandrake 10 but I can't go on the internet. I connect to the network via a Linksys USB Wireless Netowork Adapter. The cd came with the Drivers for Windows but not for Linux(as always). So I checked the Linksys website and found they released their code to all their drivers so I'm pretty sure there has to be a Linux port. Can somone help me find them. And how do you go about installing the drivers?
this depends on what version of wusb11 u have. if its 1.1, then there is no driver. if its 2.1 or above, then yes there is a driver. its the Atmel driver. i think its in mandrake wireless setup tool or something. and if not, do a google search and and download, then build it.
If that does not have drivers for Linux I also have a Siemens SpeedStream 1022 Wireless USB Adapter I can also use. On the box it says it is compatible with Linux but the drivers may or may not be included, avalible, or required. Are there any Linux drivers for this. I searched google but found few answers. I really need help on this I want to get Linux online by tonight.
there are two drivers that should work Atmel and BerliOS
i dont know whether they are in mandrake, but its definitely possible to do it from source, and its not that hard to compile it from source. It takes around 20 min usualy.
