Will Ubuntu Work work With my Wireless Card?


Hey

I've got an IPW2100 wireless card. Will Ubuntu work out of the box with this card, or is it EASY to add after setup?

I'm on like my 4th linux disto and so far the only one that I've gotten working with my network card is the knoppix live-cd

thanks
pulsar

only 4? come back crying when you've tried more than 15, like me. as for your card, it should work, ubuntu has pretty great support for pcmcia devices, but not great support for laptops.

Mine works

Dude, I have tried Shi%loads of distros on my toshiba A60 with a minitar 54 b/g card.
It work out of the box on the fist boot.
My advice is to give 5.10 a go.
