I wanted to see if I could get some advise on what to do concerning
wireless on my laptop. I have a Dell Inspiron B130 with a Dell wireless
card, 1370 WLAN, mini-PC card. It works fine on windows as does a
I have Ubuntu loaded right now in a dual boot, that one of my geek
friends worked on and am not sure if it will ever work right again. I
have been unable to get get any drivers that will load or work with
Ubuntu and network manager at all. I was using Fedora 6, but had
problems with that. I am fairly new to Linux as you can guess.
Daniel Fetchinson (I believe) wrote that he installed Fedora 8 and
network manager was working just fine and he connected to his wireless
network. I was thinking seriously of going back to Fedora but unable to
find a way to get a copy were we are staying for the winter in Florida.
Not sure if my Dell (Broadcom card I believe) will work the same way
with Fedora 8. Wish I knew more about this stuff. Linux out performs
Windows in all ways, but right now I am stuck using windows while I am
down down here for 5 months. Any suggestions on what I might be able to
do would be greatly appreciated. If I could get this thing to work I
could drop windows completely.
Thanks so much
