    Knoppix with Dell Wireless WLAN 1350 WLAN Mini-PCI Card

    Hi All

    I am new user to Knoppix, installed knoppix3.7 very recently.My wireless network connection doesnt seem to work.

    While booting knoppix i could see only only ETH0 getting detected and not Wlan.

    Would you please let me know what i need to do in order to set up the wireless connection.

    I have a Dell Inspiron 1150.

    Thank You

    You didn't say what chipset your card uses.
    You can find out by running
    lspci
    from a terminal.
    I believe your notebook comes with a broadcom wireless
    card.There are no native drivers for broadcom,but it is
    supported by ndiswrapper.This is a wrapper that uses your
    windows driver to run the card.It's included on knoppix.

    http://ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net/

    Look for your chipset on the wiki link.
    Read the installation link.
    Copy your windows drivers somewhere knoppix
    can access them.
    Search this group for ndiswrapper.
    Configuring these cards has been discussed here recently.

    Basically,from a prompt

    sudo su
    ndiswrapper -i /path/to/your/bc*.inf
    modprobe ndiswrapper
    wlcardconfig
    netcardconfig

    If you have problems,post the output of lspci and any error
    messages.

    Have Fun
