Asus 1005HA networking

Postby tjm101591 on Mon Aug 10, 2009 9:11 pm

Hello all this is my first time here and im also new to linux mint. i recently replaced Win Xp with Mint on my netbook as i heard it was a more efficient OS for netbooks. i have it installed ( i used unetbootin) but im having trouble getting my wireless and LAN cards working. i tried installing the new 2.6.30.4 kernel but i couldn't get that to install either.
any help will be great. BTW i searched and searched for other topics (and with google) like this and i found one but the solution was writen in linux jargon which im still getting used to so please do not redirect to me said topic(s).
Thanks

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

the solution was writen in linux jargon..
You have tried replacing the kernel, a fairly ambitious step, if you are just getting used to that jargon
Sorry about that, it's Linux, so there will be what you are calling Linux jargon

--this user did replace the kernel, and if that doesn't work, you still have the original kernal available on the mint grub (bootloader) menu..

--the general guides, including supported cards, think of that as the system requirements; if you were using a windows OS..
