    RE: USB wi-fi adapter?
    Thank you for your reply. I have used a USB adapter to connect to my WiFi using Mint. But I wanted the complete wifi experience using the laptop wifi and not a adapter. I persisted in trying different distros running them from Live CD first and came across CHAKRA, the laptop wifi card worked immediately so I am now dual booting Chakra and windows. Thank you

    RE: Dell Vostro 1000 wireless connection
    Hello GoinEasy9, Thank you somuch for your help. Ihave tried to follow instruction as much as possible (for a complete new person to linux,it was not easy) in following instruction I did come across errors even on updating the system through a wired connection. I have tried different systems like: Ubuntu, Mint 12 and 14 also OpenSUSE, all with no joy in getting my WIFI card working. I am writing this post using Mint 14 with a Belking USB Card connected to the laptop and using my wireless network (I am impressed) soI assume that linux in generaldoes not like Dell Vostro 4311 Wireless adapter. I will continue with the Belkin USB wireless adapter. Thank you so much for all your help. Regards Ignacio

    Dell Vostro 1000 wireless connection
    Hello, I am a complete novice that would like to start experimenting and using Linux. I have a dell Vostro 1000 laptop, I have had the same problem with Ubuntu that I am now having with Mint 14 Mate. The problem happens either with the O.S installed on HHD with dual boot or Live CD. My wireless card Broadcom 1390 will not work. I have selected the wireless driver that is listed in Additional Software at the same time as connected, wired, to my sky router. The only way I can get Linux to connect wirelessly is through VMware player. Please help as this is making me steering away from Linux. Thank you for your help.
