Unhappy Wireless Driver on Slackware


Greetings to everyone
Am writing from Africa, I have just installed a SLACKWARE 14.1 on a SAMSUNG LAPTOP. Hope someone can guide me true.
Is true i have been playing with Linux in the past but this time aroun there's no going back. I really wish to make it .
Am really a beginner in fact i don't even know how to find my way using the command line.
Feel free to guide me on all the steps i should follow.

Wireless Driver on Slackware

Hi,

You need to provide some information on your wireless card.

A good start here :

You can determine your wireless chipset by running the command

Code:
/sbin/lspci
in a terminal (unless it's a USB adapter). Post the portion of the output regarding the wireless, being sure to surround it with "Code" tags which become available when you click the "Go Advanced" button at the bottom of the "compose post" window. With that bit of information, we should be able to help you.

Run this command as root in the terminal and it will tell us what wireless card you have.

Code:
lspci | grep -i network
Post the output when you can.
