Linksys wireless PCI card not working (Helena)

Postby Untame » Fri Jan 29, 2010 12:59 pm

I just installed Helena on my desktop with a dual boot with XP. The installation of Helena was unable to configure my wireless network card to work. What do I need to do to get it working? Here is the result of lspci:

Dynomite! Thanks for that link. I'll get to it later today and give it a try. I'm a total noob with Linux, so I appreciate people like you who point me in the right direction toward easy to understand instructions.
