i just got an amilo LI1818 laptop with win vista. I've just erased it with a linux mint 14 for my daughter. Pretty nice and easy install with iso on usb key. Great
internet connexion works fine with a wire. Now i'm stuck with the wireless stuff.
The driver for this computer is the sis163u. I downloaded it and installed it through both methods : gui "add wireless driver" and also command line
# ndiswrapper -i sis163u.inf
both process worked fine.
# ndiswrapper -l
sis163u : driver installed
device (0BFF:100E) present
I created a new wireless connection with SSID, key type and password
iwconfig doesn't list the wireless connexion at all and i don't see the sis163u module in lsmod but it appears in lsusb.
there is a switch on this computer to activate the wifi card, it used to work on vista, i don't know if it's still useful on Mint but however it is switched on.
I would appreciate some help:)
