Linux Mint 3.1 convert

Postby chambers » Sat Oct 13, 2007 8:11 am

Hi I am new to your forum and would like to say hi.

After 2 months of trying to get Freespire 2.0 and 2.3 to connect via wireless I gave up :evil: and started to look for a new Linux. :?: I had been using Freespire 1.0.13 and it worked with wireless out of the box. :lol: Yesterday I downloaded Linux Mint 3.1 full version and had my wireless with in 20 mins of install. :wink: Not knowing how this version of Linux works I had to do a little hit and miss to find out that it did not load any drivers. :?: But had a wireless install menu. :idea: Opened my windows cd for my wireless card pop it into the cd drive and went to drivers and installed. Well I must say that had to be the smartest way to install wireless in Linux. :idea: Saw that the driver was installed and loaded with ndiswrapper -l. Went stright to setup put in the WEB Key and Ip address and i was in the Internet. :D

Thank You Linux Mint for making my wireless work the first time. :D :wink:
