Wireless with LXDE?

Postby Jerry N on Thu Mar 22, 2012 7:13 pm

On my 6 year old HP DV5000 laptop, Mint 9 automatically installed the wireless driver (while connected to wired ethernet, of course).
I replaced Mint 9 with Mint 12 LXDE today and there doesn't seem to be a wireless driver available. Is there an easy way around this or do I need to re-install Mint 9? Mint 12 LXDE installed a wireless driver on my miserable little HP Mini 210 without difficulty. Not having Mint wireless on the old DV5000 is not a total disaster - I still have Win XP up to date on that machine.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

If your wireless is working under XP, you can use ndiswrapper to load the windows driver: http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=42&t=87800&start=0
