Should work out of the box. I both had Linux Mint and OpenSUSE 10.2 on my Hewlett-Packard dv2108 and both recognized my Intel 3945 WiFi interface (I am using it right now as I type this!). With OpenSUSE I had a minor issue (probably a bug in SUSE?) that I have to initialize the interface twice (e.g. let the system turn the WiFi on, then shut it down again, then turn it on again .... I automated this via /etc/init.d/boot.local ) but I don't remember having this issue with Mint.theoneghost wrote:Does anyone know what I need to do to get support for this card on Mint?
Or could someone tell me if there is already support? This is the only thing I want worked out before I install Mint.
