Wireless card driver for Linux - Linux / Unix Administration

Hi, I am not certain whether this is the right group to ask this question. Apologies in advance. I bought a Compaq 3045 US Laptop and it has an integrated wireless card. I have installed Linux (Redhat 9.0) on the Laptop but it does not detect the Wireless card. All I know about the wireless card is that it is a Linksys 54g card. Compaq customer support has been of no help and all attempts to contact Linksys have failed. Is there someway I can detect the Wireless card. I also need the driver for the same. I would appreciate ...

    Default Wireless card driver for Linux

    Hi,

    I am not certain whether this is the right group to ask this question.
    Apologies in advance.

    I bought a Compaq 3045 US Laptop and it has an integrated wireless
    card. I have installed Linux (Redhat 9.0) on the Laptop but it does
    not detect the
    Wireless card. All I know about the wireless card is that it is a
    Linksys 54g card. Compaq customer support has been of no help and all
    attempts to contact Linksys have failed.

    Is there someway I can detect the Wireless card. I also need the
    driver for the same. I would appreciate any comments.

    Thanks,
    Akshat Trivedi

    A quick search on google showed that the the Linksys 54g card uses a
    Broadcom chipset. Broadcom has not released specs to the Linux developers,
    so no driver. However, there appears to be some support for loading the
    windows driver under linux and using the card that way. Try

    resource.

    If at first you don't succeed,
    read the manual......

    If you want troublefree WLAN with Linux go for a Cisco card, second but
    still a good choice are the Agere (former Lucent) cards.

    I'm sure Linux can _detect_ this card. Loading a working driver is
    another problem ;-)

    Google is your friend.
