Description of problem:
Ok, it's been a year since I tried to use RH or any other distro with my
wireless card, a Dlink DWL-520. Dlink and Linksys are two of the most available
and widely used wireless cards on the market yet, there still is no support in
RH Limbo. PLEASE make this work. I know there is a quality driver out there
from visiting the ng's.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): Redhat Limbo
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RH Libo Beta
2. Try to configure/install a Dlink DWL-520
Expected Results: This PCI card should be supported by now
I will completely throw out Windwoes as soon as this support is available.
I completely agree. I bought my Linksys Wireless PCI card (WMP11) thinking
that it would be supported out of the box by some distribution.. since it is
the most widely used card out there today. I was wrong... if there is any help
I can provide, please let me know and I will do it. (null) is shaping up VERY
well, but if I can't get on my network, then I can't use it...
