I have just purchased a Belkin 802.11g 54 Mbps Wireless PCMCIA Card from http://www.linuxemporium.co.uk/products/wireless/#pid81765 that came with linux drivers would some one please be kind enough to walk me through installing the drivers for suse V10 or V10.1 as i have not got a clue what to do i could do it with my old card (when it wanted to) using ndiswrapper.

thanks in advance

Good on you chaos wraith i was once like you a few months ago "what version is best for me and my PC" i to tried lots of versions like Mandriva Suse Red Hat Ubuntu PC linux ECT and i would advise you go with one that you can easly configure for the pc. I found that Mandriva was the better option for my tower and Suse was the better option for my laptop those were the only ones i could get to work and configure easly on my comps trust me i spent a lot of time trawling through forums for answers and help and now i have finnaly reached my gaol. All i can say is its up to you to find whats best for you and your comp keep in there and dont be put off by those "simple" little probs like a distro not recognising something you will get there just keep trying

Have you tried turning it off in the BIOS (some bioses let you switch things like that off)? It might work once the system is installed.

will look @ that but i doubt it will help but i suppose anything is worth a try

I have mandiva installed on another pc with a lot of help and searching i got the wireless card working on that 1 but my wireless card prevents the install of mandriva on the laptop it even prevents live CD's running thats why i was thinking of forking out some ús on a new card that is compatable with linux

I have tried many linux distros mandriva,suse,pclinuxos,linux xp, ubuntu just to name a few on my packard bell laptop and not one of them will work with my wireless network card. My first choice of OS is Suse then Mandriva does any one know of a wireless card that will work with linux no problem IE plug in the card install linux then just configure it without using ndiswrapper hopefully

thanks in advance

ps i live in the UK

thank you helios as i write this i am DL PClinuxOS i trawled through some other forums today trying to find an answer or help with my wireless problem on the laptop and PClinuxOS was recomended on another one as for suse its a no go as far as laptop wireless goes and as for purchasing a new wireless card i think if PClinuxOS don't work then i may have to purchase 1

thanks

Hello,

you can go with either Suse, Mandrake or even Fedora Core, but whatever you do make sure you choose a distro with a 2.6.x series kernel, they tend to recognise wireless cards more then the ones with the older kernels.

Sincerely
Robert B


suse i have tried on both PC's and i have had nothing but trouble trying to connect wireless, Mandrake on the otherhand didn't work on the laptop it went on like a dream on the tower and i connected to the internet within a couple of hours once i had found a compatable driver for the wireless card and as for Fedora core i have not had the pleasure of trying

thanks

Ok ive done what DS2K3 advised i then in (mandriva) went to sytem/cofiguration/packading /install software and i got torrent software AND the most inportant 1 which i DL from there websit was BLENDER which i need for my college work ive deleted the DL as i did it the easy way.

just to clear things up if there is software out here for linux thats all i have to do is use rpmdrake in mandriva and not got to the websites and make life hard cos ifs thats the case then thats what i will do from now on. (May need help in the future with wine and another piece of software that will run adobe PS under linux)

I live in the UK ive just read on the net that suse is easyer to install progs with 1 problem though it was easyer to get online with Mandriva than suse and secondly suse will not install on my laptop (wireless card prevents it) wich is where i want it as i write this i am on my tower testing linux untill i can figure out how to install it on my laptop (without the need to by a new wireless card) which i think i may need to do

thanks
