Update kernel without internet connection

Postby rocke4444 on Sat Oct 31, 2009 3:24 pm

I need to update the kernel to get my wireless card working. I have a acer timeline 4810tz. It has a intel wifi 100 series wireless card. This card isn't recognized under the 2.6.28-11 kernel. I need to update this kernel on this laptop (I'm typing on my desktop.) I have no data on it so I something goes wrong I have nothing to loose. How should I go about doing this?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Download all of the kernel packages on your desktop, burn them to disk and install the packages on your laptop.

You need deb packages.
