August Dallinghello all, watt0sr4 seems pretty good, didn't expect my 12 year old life book to be useful again, but it is! even the touchscreen works! just gotta solve the wireless networking and it'll be complete!
I have just installed on my 12 year old fujitsu lifebook B-2131, all seems fine most stuff is detected ok and running quite quick for something with only 192mb of memory and a 400mhz processor! really impressed. wired network is fine, but i cannot seem to get wireless working, the laptop has a pcmcia port and I have an array of cards:
3com 11mbps WIreless lan officeconnect (3CRSHPW196)
none of which seem to want to work, the closest i get is the edimax which at least detects my wireless network before failing to authenticate. (even when i set my wireless secutity on my netgear wap to pretty lax and frankly dangerous open security)
any Ideas how to better fine tune the wireless or configure ndiswrapper on wattos4? ideally I'd like to use the Dlink (uses Ra61 driver) or the 3com (as the ariel folds up on this card so it is neat and darn groovy, pity it is only 11mbit but then i'm using the laptop just to surf t'internet so i'm not fussed with speed much.)
