Cannot get wireless connection with mandrake 10 using dell laptop
hello, I am brand new to linux and don't know how to do anything with it, I have mandrake 10 installed and am using kde, anyway I have a dell laptop inspiron 1150 with a wireless card, the card is one or both of these (I'm not exactly sure what the broadcom bit is):
Dell Wireless WLAN 1350 WLAN Mini-PCI card
Broadcom 440x10/100 Integrated controller Rev. A04
under kde I went into network config and chose wireless conection from a list containing adsl, cable, dailup etc. then it gives me a long list and asks me to choose one. I don't even know what exactly I'm coosing here, if it is a driver why can't linux prompt me for a disk? Anyway if someone can please help it would be great also bear in mind that if anyone advises me to run a command you'll have to tell me how and where from to do that, I am seriously new, all I can do is point and click. I want to stop using windows but until I get my internet up it is a royal pain since I have to reboot to windows every 5 mins to get info online. Also worth mentioning, one of the choices in said list is bcom 4400 or somethign similar, I tried to choose it but the screen just flickered and went back to prompting me to choose again so I assume it is not the right one. Thanks.
