mandrake 10 internet conection problem. Please Help


i'm a newbie to linux and this forum. I installed Mandrake 10 about a week now but still don't know how to setup the internet connection. Could someone please show me step by step of how to config. I'm running a dual boot (Windows/Linux) and have no promblems with Windows net connection. i'm using a router (D-Link Wireless DI-624).
thanks

You may need to use something called ndiswrapper. This allows you to use Windows wireless NIC drivers in Linux. The homepage is http://ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net/ . Also, you can get a wealth of information from these forums on the subject by searching for ndiswrapper. Probably would find many posts discussing your exact hardware, too, if you toss the model into the search field.
