Trying to get help installing the driver needed to get wireless with fedora 16. I think Linux rocks but I need wireless. Working with a netgear wnda3100v2 wireless adaptor. Can't seem to find the info. If there is another wireless adaptor that is needed or more simple that could be an option.
I've recently installed Fedora 18 (MATE) and I've had a heck of a time getting my wireless to work. I've done a lot of research over the past couple of days and I've tried configuring wireless with a USB (Netgear WNDA3100v2) and a Wireless Card (Marvell Technology Group Ltd. 88w8335 [Libertas] 802.11b/g Wireless (rev 03)).
I installed #! a few days ago and it's been working great, except for one thing. I can't get the wireless to work. I have a wired connection that works fine. My wireless card is an Intel Advanced-N 6205. I did some searching and it looked like the iwlwifi package should support my card, but i still don't have wireless capabilities. I'm new to #!
I have noticed that many users have an issue with this type of wireless card and I have already searched through several threads of solutions with no avail. If someone could point me in the right direction, it would be greatly appreciated.
My wireless card (wna3100 Netgear) just won't connect to the internet. It's always stuck on "configuring device." I'm not much of a Unix person so any help would be greatly appreciated. I know there's a lot of posts about this subject already, but I can't follow reading the posts because there's too much Linux language I can't follow, so please treat me like an idiot and spell things out for me.
I am new to linux, and recently installed fedora 13 in dual boot with windows on my machine. I am having a problem getting fedora 13 to activate my netgear wna 1100 wireless adapter. It kis reading the adapter at Bus 002 Device 0033 ID 0846:9030 Netgear, Inc., but it will not power on. I've burnt the window driver to disc but being a different language, it will not work in linux.
I use kmail in kubuntu 8.04. Whenever I have a wired connection, kmail checks email and sends messages just fine. However, any time I switch to wireless, kmail just says "No new messages," without even checking. I am also unable to send email over wireless.
I've tried searching the internet for people with similar problems, but to no avail.
