18823more internet problems...
- Oct 1, 2004Hi people,
Once again I am unable to connect to the internet. I have just moved my
computer up to Uni where we have a wireless network installed in our
flat. My question is:
How do I install my Benq AWL300 Usb wireless adaptor into Linux Suse
9.1? It works fine on my installation of Windows XP (on the same
machine) but I've no idea if it's been autodetected in Linux (or if
Linux even does this in normal use), and I haven't been able to find a
specific driver for it for Linux when searching in google (if it needs a
specific Linux driver) so I'm generally stuck. Anyone know how I can
achieve this? Or how the whole connecting to an internal network via
USB device works?
Also is there anyway to simulate the automatic device detection that
goes on when you first install SuSE? Cos for us novices that's always
one to try with a new piece of hardware rather than doing it manually
(although I'm sure in a lot of cases it might not work...) but it would
be useful to be able to make it autodetect devices on command...
Thanks everyone as always...
