Just a "hats off" to Clem's elves

Post by pottzie » Mon Feb 21, 2011 4:07 pm

I'm going through a process of getting several operating systems to communicate with a new wireless router. I have Ubuntu, Fedora, and Mint on various computers.

Ubuntu, for whatever reason, freezes when I try and enter the new router's password. The mouse and keyboard quit working as soon as I type the first letter when it asks for my password to unlock the key ring. Fedora says the router doesn't accept the password I've entered. Both Ubuntu and Fedora systems are using ndiswraper, and Fedora I've changed to wicd, but they're both dead on arrival until someone in the forums points my in the right direction. This has been going on for about a week now.

Mint? I've got Mint 10 on one computer, Mint 9 with ndiswrapper on another, LXDE on an ancient Thinkpad, and Mint Debian on a fourth. All it took on all four was entering the password. Point, click, connect. 10 minutes, max.

Thanks, Mint.

^ Agreed . . . a big 'high-five' to all the Mintys.

Great job. :D Clem has put together an awesome little Mint team. :P
