Wireless Card Detection

Postby Carlwill on Thu Jul 17, 2008 6:32 pm

I currently have a Dell laptop w/ a Intel 4965AGN internal wireless card. This card is auto detected perfectly in Ubuntu 8.04 however when I install the latest version of Linux Mint, it does not see the card :x

Does anyone know what I need to do in order to get the wireless NIC working using Linux Mint?

Thanks in advance for any help on resolving this issue.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Right now I am posting from my Linux Ubuntu 8.04 laptop with the identical wireless card.

Code: Select all
carlos@trex:~$ lspci | grep "ireless"
0c:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 4965 AG or AGN Network Connection (rev 61)


Installing Mint again on this laptop & will post back results of lspci when it is complete.

It appears that my card is detected just fine in Mint. I am posting from it now and had to load nothing. Just from a basic install.

Thanks!

Normally you should not ask for help in someone else's thread.

Why don't you post the exact make and model of the wireless card and as well as the results of lspci as noted above so we can help you.
