USB Wireless Dongle - HELP PLEASE
February 22, 2008 10:00AM
Hey all

First time trying elive and Im impressed. I installed on an old Samsung VM8000 laptop to try it out. Runs nice.

Well apart from having no idea how to get the wireless USB dongle to work.

I have tried tutorials etc but cannot get a grip on how to enable my USB detection or install/mount the dongle. Any help or pointers in the right direction will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

First you must find out what chipset you dongle is using i.e. ralink, atheros or prism etc..

You can then decide to use native linux drivers if they exist or the windows driver through ndis wrapper.
