Hey, New user here I decided i wanted to try out linux and learn it. For the last 5 days now i've been trying to get my wireless network card working on it.. and had no luck at all! I started off with having Ubuntu 8.10 installed onto my external hard drive. I spent the last 4 days reading info, following step by step guides which basicly spoon feed you. Out of every guide i tried all failed. It must of been me doing something wrong but i could not get my wireless card working at all. Anyway i read that Fedora 10 works with my wireless card out of the box. I downloaded the iso, burned to disk, installed on my external hard drive and booted it up on the laptop. The wireless was not working. I thought maybe if i download the updates that might get it working. Plugged in the ethernet cable and got them, still no luck. I've only tried one guide to try get my card working with fedora and thats this one here. (I cant post links. This guide didn't get it working) Please could someone give me a hand in getting this set up? I know there is so so many guides and information all over the internet on this, but i just cant seem to get it working what ever i do. Some help and advice from a experienced user would really be appreciated =) In windows it says i have an Atheros AR5005GS card. So from what I've read i believe that i need the madwifi drivers to get this working. Since im very new to linux and still dont know that many commands heres some info from the few that i do know , Any help will be useful, hope someone knows where im going wrong. And sorry if I've not given the correct info, just say if i haven't and i will try get the info you need.
