nvm the first part of my comments, i see it is a laptop and withdraw that remark. the network stuff i still hold

id be jealeus of you except for the fact that everyhting else stinks... i think there are drivers for it, and you should check you networking to see if it isnt already recognized. it may have the hardware recognized, but you may need to create a network device for it.

and oh yeah, for setting up network devices for wifi (this only counts is you use a secure wifi system) you need to have you WEP key ready. you probably already knew that but i was just saying that to be careful.

im sorry dude but you have no idea what you are talking about. I am looking to buy some new Asus mother boards they have some features on it i wondered will it work in Linux. Please dont post to my thread cause you are way off. So is there anyone out there I was talking specifically about the ASUS P5B Deluxe/WiFi-AP and M2N32-SLI Deluxe/Wireless Edition these are the 2 motherboards i was looking at. Anyone have any expericence with either of these yet mostly in reference to the remote and wifi working in Linux.

I was intrigued by the WiFi-AP Solo aspect of this thing, so I poked around a little. Looks like it's a Realtek RTL8187L chip, and Realtek provides driver source code on their web site.

http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/...eyword=RTL8187

Sounds like you might be able to get it to work. According to the readme:

Release Date: 2006-01-13, ver 1.1
RTL8187 Linux driver version 1.1
--This driver supports RealTek RTL8187 Wireless LAN driver for
Fedora Core 2/3/4/5, Debian 3.1, Mandrake 10.2/Mandriva 2006,
SUSE 9.3/10.1/10.2, Gentoo 3.1, etc.
- Support Client mode for either infrastructure or adhoc mode
- Support WEP and WPAPSK connection

Wifi-AP Solo

I have this in my motherboard, so far, I have been unsuccessful in getting it working. The chip I have is the Realtek rtl8187, and Realtek does provide drivers for linux, but I have not been able to get them installed. If you get a board that has it, and find out how to get it working, let me know

Please post the error message you're encountering. (I do not have one of these boards, by the way, and I don't have any Linux wireless devices at all, so I'll probably be of limited help.)

I have looked at similiar errors that other people have received, but not exactly what I get. I also tried using ndiswrapper, and it recognized the wireless, but I could never get the light to come on, even tho I was able to set the ssid. I have since reinstalled Fedora Core 6, and have not tried ndiswrapper again.
If you can help, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
baysailor

Execute this command as root, then retry your build.

touch /usr/src/kernels/2.6.18-1.2849.fc6-i686/include/linux/config.h
