wireless networking


Hi, i appologise since i probably am asking a question that might have been answered, but i have a microsoft mn510 which i believe is supported by the prism2 drivers. i tried plugging it in, and then going to net setup then prism2, typed in my networks information, and after a small pause, it said it didnt work. do i need to mount the device? sorry i am a newb although love DSL! thanks

EDIT: well i have made some progress i think,
the wireless adapter has two lights, one is power, one is called "wireless"(which probably means activity. Both are lit, but after i try the prism2 setup, the wireless begins to blink and doesnt stop blinking. so i just go ahead and try the prism2 or do i need to set it up else where first?

Sorry about that. Look at the top here or to the right and you will see a link called HCL for Hardware Compatibility List. A list that users here have contributed. If all works for you then you can add your experience to the hardware article.

humm, ok well i foud the supposid driver file, my only questions reguards the fact that the network card i am using(microsoft MN-510) has the prism2 chipset and DSL has a prism2 config built in, i just was having difficulties getting the network card to connect. the system seems to know it is there though....

here is what i am looking at
