WiFi card not enabled on Elyssa

Postby marianogedisman » Mon Nov 17, 2008 11:29 pm

Hello all,
I have Mint Elyssa and I can see the net5211 windows driver on the system (HAL and support for Atheros LAN cards is checked on the Hardware drivers window) however, I cannot see it on the Network settings window. :?:

Quite weird, since I was able to install it with no problem before, but I forgot how I did it! :shock:

Help will be much appreciated.

Cheers.
