I have read and tried similar solutions, but cannot get them to work.
I have a dell inspiron laptop E1505 with minicard 1390 wifi card and a ethernet port
i am trying to get internet to my laptop with wifi and then connect to desktop with ethernet cable to share with the laptops internet connection with desktop
this laptop running linux mint 11... seems to drop wlan0 when i get eth0 to work and drops eth0 when i get wlan0 to work
When i untinstall the wireless driver and reboot then the eth0 works...but if i activate the wifi driver and reboot then the eth0 is gone
The weird part is that when the wifi is working and the eth0 is not recognized.....the light on eth0 port on computer still lights up when i plug it in
I am not extremely skilled in terminal( i know some)....but if giving terminal commands please give exact words and spacing.
I really need this to work, cuz i have no other way of getting internet to my desktop right now.
