    Give us your wireless card specifications and hopefully we can yield some results.

    Last I remember, on LINUX the command is:

    Code:
    lspci
    and then find your card..

    I don't quite understand why people complain about wireless card issues. All you have to do is go buy a different card if there is no hope of it working. They're like $30. All you do is open up the case of your laptop and switch out a mini-PCI card. That isn't exactly challenging. And if you have a desktop...

    You should try the new 8.10 release, because in the last two months A LOT has changed in the whole driver area so I'd be surprised if it doesn't work. Besides the 8.10 release is centered around mobile networking so give it a go.
