I'm impressed with 2006

Posted: 12-29-2005, 07:45 AM
I have to salute Mandriva and the developers for a job well done on making
Mandriva easy to use. I have lurked here awhile and read any articles of
interest and topics that might be relevant to my situation. The fact that
I am able to sit here on my IBM R32 laptop and read this newsgroup over my
wireless connection is testament that things are getting easier to do in
Mandriva. I got a Netgear WG511v2 wireless PCMCIA card and 2006 recognized
it as a PRISM card, details not remembered, and it may very well be.
Having read an earlier discussion here about using ndiswrapper and being
able to use a Windows driver I decided to go that route when configuring.
The wireless setup wizard was straightforward and, thankfully, entering
the 26 hex numbers for the WEP key worked. I was a little worried about
that one because the key was generated in Windows using a passphrase and I
had not noticed any Linux utilities to generate a WEP key from a
passphrase. Anyway, I'm thrilled that things went so well.
