Re: installing a Trendnet TEW-424UB wireless adapter

Edwardr, No, the wireless wouldn't work with Live CD. I hoped that installing would take care of that. I have no drivers installed (because they wouldn't install) now under ndis but a reboot doesn't bring the adapter to life. I did some research on what distro is good with wireless and Mint was supp...

Hi Everybody, My system is home built and consists of a 2.6 P4/533, 1 gig RAM and a 20 gig HD just for testing Mint. I have been unable to get my TEW 424UB wireless adapter installed.
