Can't find .inf file for ndiswrapper for 1000h eeepc wlan

Postby birdy on Sun Dec 28, 2008 8:01 pm

Hello,

So I am a complete newbie and this is my first post -- I have Linux Mint 6 main on my 1000h eeepc and would really like to keep it (it's great!), but I can't get any wireless interface to show up. I would like to try using ndiswrapper in the Windows Wireless Drivers option in Mint but can't find the .inf driver file for the eeepc on my original CD (XP) or on the internet. I feel a bit silly but need to ask because I've been trying to sort it out for two days now...!

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Thanks for this link -- I actually gave up with my efforts and went back to ubuntu-eee, and now enjoy hassle-free wireless again. I think I need a bit more technical know-how to get this working with Linux Mint. Thanks anyway!

1. go to asus website and download the drivers for you model
2 run windows wireless drivers
3 find the ini file in the drivers you downloaded, it will be in a folder with ndis in the name
