Full Version: Problem making wlan-ng
Linuxhelp > Support > Technical Support
I have been slaving for weeks to get my ma111 usb wireless adapter installed properly, so i'm trying to install linux-wlan-ng-0.2.3.
It has been error after error for me, and i've got to this point and havn't been able to find a fix yet.
