I connect two ways:
- android tethering via easytether.deb
- netgear wireless usb
I had them both working without a hitch in Mint Julia.
network-manager needs to be stopped. I add easytether0 to interfaces file. I restart networking and I'm connected. If I don't stop network-manager, he'll keep breaking my connection.
When I try to install the windows drivers for netgear using:
Menu -> Administration -> Windows Wireless Drivers
It complains ndiswrapper may not be installed. ndiswrapper is. Can't get inf driver to install. Julia took it fine.
