Netgear MA401 wireless & best distro
Okay, I give up. I have done reinstalls, recompilation of the kernel, etc., etc. in Mandrake 9.1. Not only does the wireless not work (although it did for a short time during my first install), there seems to be a problem with the configuration system in Mandrake 9.1 that causes all sorts of other problems in the presence of the wireless card.
So, my latest theory is it is time to try a new distro. I keep reinstalling Mandrake to no avail, so I may as well try installing something else.
Does anyone have an MA401 card running on a laptop? If so, what distro? What distro do you recommend anyway?
I like Mandrake because of its update feature, the ease of kernel recompilation and the fact that it stays pretty current.
I was thinking of trying Redhat.
Your suggestions will be appreciated.
