IBM ThinkPad, Mandrake 10 - Intel Pro/Wireless 2011

I'm very new to Linux and just installed Mandrake 10 (Community) on to my IBM Thinkpad A22.

I can get the internet going ok with the internal 10/100 ethernet card. I also have a PCMIA card - an Intel Pro/Wireless card which Mandrake does detect. However I cannot seem to be able to connect via that card. I have programmed in the correct details to access my wireless router with SSID, encryption key etc.

I can only connect via the ethenet card. There doesn't seem to be a way so start the connection at all. When I go to the Control Centre and get to the Monitor Connections. I can see the card appearing as eth1 (eth0 is the ethernet card) but only the ethernet card will start. All traffic seems to want to go to the ethernet card even when I disable it.

Any advise would be much appreciated. I don't want to keep running ethernet cable throughout the house and want to get the wireless card working. It works perfectly fine under Windows XP and have a dual-boot setup.

I have a ThinkPad 560Z with Linux Mandrake 9.1 and my Linksys 10/100 EtherFast Notebook Adapter is not detected through HardDrake. Maybe I need to 1) compile my kernel to upgrade it or 2)Install 10.0 Official.

Any ideas?

Tip for newbies: right click on the desktop, choose Run Command. Type mcc in the box. That will open the Mandrake Control Center and allow you to run HardDrake.
