Problems with Intel Wifi Link 1000 BGN
November 19, 2010 11:32PM
Hi!... First of all, I really like Elive...this distribution helped me in the past, when I had a slow machine...and I still like it..

Now, the problem. Yesterday, I installed the last stable version (Elive Topaz 2.0) from a bootable USB key created with the utility included in the LiveCD... But I can't have wireless connection...

I have a Wifi Router...It is working well... I think the problem is the driver for my network adapter...

I'm a little newbie in Linux... I studied about it, but i never used it frequently...

This is what I tried:
- I downloaded the firmware and extracted the content into various folders, cause I don't know the correct one:
- /lib/firmware
- /usr/lib/firmware

- I've tried booting Elive in the mode for repairing, and choosing the option that searches in my Windows folder for the Wifi driver...
- I've configured the archive /etc/network/interfaces with my network properties...
- I've tried installing the Windows driver from the console...


I don't know what to do... And I don't want to use another Linux distribution...


Any help??


Thank you very much!!!!
