Just installed Suse Linux as a dual boot system with Windows XP on an HP Pavilion notebook.
The installation worked well, but I can’t get connected to the internet.
I have a wireless card - I can not find out which manufacturer it is and assume it’s HP specific. It’s broadcom 802.11 and is not supported by Suse Linux - does anyone know where I could find a linux driver for this card… or whether I need to attempt using ndiswrapper?
If anyone has advice on ndiswrapper I’d appreciate some guidance (I’m currently reading a tutorial on it on suseforums.
My internet cable connection is strange…
The network card is NVidia, and is detected by Linux. When I boot up, KNetwork manager is giving a message that a wired network is connected - however I can’t get Firefox or Konqueror to work.
I’ve tried configuring the network card manually, but haven’t been able to connect yet.
Any ideas much appreciated
