I have searched the forum and google but unable to find a solution for my problem.
I have Lenovo Thinkpad Edge laptop (Slackware 13.37) with wifi, but i cant seem to install the wifi network interface correctly.
lspci tells me that the wifi card is a
3:00.0 Network controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8188CE 802.11b/g/n WiFi Adapter (rev 01)
I went to realtek and downloaded the Linux driver for RTL8188CE and for kernel 2.6.24+.
After i extracted the file i changed directory to the newly extracted folder and did
with no errors.
According to the readme-file i only needed to reboot my machine for the wifi to work. But i cant seem to make it work. I have tried the WICD application but it cant find the network interface.
tells me that wlan0 is an unknown interface.
