Re: [linux-dell-laptops] Need help setting up wireless internet
- I found 1 review that says it is winblows only, but that was from Oct, 2003.
Another said the reltek drivers might work on it, but that thread did not post if
The homepage lists only m$ support.
You might have to return it and get one from a more suppored manufacturer.
