Dell Wireless 1390 WLAN Mini Card

Postby dfrantom on Sat Oct 09, 2010 5:51 pm

Just installed Mint KDE 9.0 on my Dell Vostro 1500 with the Dell 1390 Wireless card. It looks like it's working but when I scan for wireless networks (mine), it cannot find them. I'm a newbie to linux so be gentle.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

The first and obvious thing to check is whether the wireless toggle/switch is on, the second is whether networking and wireless is enabled by right mousing the network tray icon.
[Edit] your original post and add [SOLVED] once your question is resolved.

“The people are my God” stressing the factor determining man’s destiny lies within man not in anything outside man, and thereby defining man as the dominator and remoulder of the world.
