Mandriva wireless works on one network but not another
Hello, Newbie (sort of)here!
I have a Dell C640 (courtesy of Freecycle), plenty of RAM, ethernet, wireless etc. I fitted a brand new HD and loaded Mandriva 2007. Works beautifully and the 3D desktop is very impressive to show to colleagues who spout on and on about vista ;-)
Everything worked straight away but being a newbie I tried Ubuntu, Kubuntu and Suse but came back to (a clean install) Mandriva. I also have an iBook G4 and both machines are happy on my home network via wireless or via rj45.
OK, so I come over to my partner's for a few days (she uses the Dark Side) but with a wireless router and my Mac works just fine. The Mandriva machine just cannot see the wireless :-(
I've tried allsorts - even switched off the security completely - nothing. The Mac sees nieghbours networks (as do *both* machines at home) but the Linux sees nothing
What gives? As Spock would say "It's just not logical, Captain"
