    Exclamation Toshiba Satellite L40-18Y

    Hi,

    I'm having trouble getting my wireless to work at my laptop. I've tried many distributions such as ubuntu, linuxmint, suse 10.3 and my card refuses to work. Any ideas how to make my wifi to work with suse 11?

    Thanks

    bit more info please, as it may help in diagnosing & providing useful help for you. A quick look at the stickie at the start of the wireless forum will give you an idea of what we require

    hmm, don't see anything related to wireless devices, is it plugged in/ switched on ? can you post the results of this command /sbin/lspci -v so we get a more verbose output

    There is a switch that when it's turned on there's a light that appears only when using vista. In ubuntu, suse etc the switch is on but there is no light. is hte command right, because i get "No such file or directory". I'm using a live cd

    command is correct, best thing to do, is switch it on,so the hardware is recognized & then run the command ( copy/paste if necessary )

    ok, having a darn good look around, i have discovered it could have one of two chip-sets.

    Atheros = you need madwifi drivers madwifi.org - Trac
    Realtek = RTL

    try them one at a time
