Newbie having problems...


lright. I just got Mandrakelinux, version 10 and I can't figure out how to get the internet working on it.

On my main computer (Has Windows XP Pro) I have a Linksys router. WRT54G is the model. And on the Linux computer (Laptop) I'm using a WPC54G network card.

I go into the network setup... yadda yadda and then I go to New Connection and make the new connection wireless then it goes to a screen saying "Which network/main driver should I try?" and there's a list with a bunch of options that I don't know what to do with. I've tried a couple different ones and there's some screen asking me if I wanna autoprobe something or put in my own options...

What do I do?
