hi all! first post here, would to thank everybody for the nice distro

ok so i installed the window wireless driver .inf file and cofigured it but it only works sometimes. during boot it will receive an address about 1 out of 5 times. when it does receive an ip it wont stay connected longer than a couple of minutes. i also dont know if theres a way to try reconnecting without rebooting (probably because im a noob) any help is greatly appreciated thanks

:idea: alright to those 51 viewers and no ideas or whatever your deal was
i figured it out
the .inf file that came with the microsoft uhhh i mean linksys cd had one with
the letter 'a' after it and one without
the one one without was the ticket
it managed to connect for long enough to get wifi radar out of the repository
and with some visual aid on the connection strength, a lamp shade and some tin foil i can connect once parsix is loaded :twisted:

What's your wireless chipset that forced you to use nDiswrapper?

hey alan
actually replying from my parsixbox now :)
the chipset is .............
Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4318 [AirForce One 54g] 802.11g Wireless LAN Controller (rev 02)
the reason i used the wrap was probably just my default mindset (sidux would recognize but not connect)
but by all means it totally works now i really have no complaints about the no connect during boot
it stalls the process by seconds and always connects with wifi radar
......if there is an easy fix i would love to try:)
