    The upgrade wipes out ALL drivers even my cat5/ethernet driver so I'm sure thats his problem.

    I didn't expect a full answer on the first reply.

    I thought I'd start out buy stating my basic problem first and going from there.

    Yeah I'm guessing that too.

    I have never had the need to ever install a new driver so how would I go about installing a new driver?

    I have an Intel 82801DB PRO/100 VE (LOM) Ethernet Controller

    Its a GUI for connecting to wireless networks. Linux connection is generally done from the command line and the wlan ass. makes a easier transition for people more familiar with windows

    It should also be mentioned that wlassistant is very buggy and should only be used when you really cannot do it manually, a skill that should be worked on so you can.

    So basically what I need to do is install the driver.

    Where would the driver information be located on my HDD installed BT2 for my Intel 82801DB PRO/100 VE (LOM) Ethernet Controller? (Prior to the Slackware 12 upgrade.)

    Everything goes great up until I install the new packages.

    Then when I try to connect with a browser (or do a netstat, ifconfig) it says I don't have a connection.

    Obviously you can tell I haven't used linux very long


    Is the driver info located somewhere in the /ETC folder?

    You will need to get wlassistant again. Grab it here http://sourceforge.net/project/downl...mirror=surfnet
    Google it you should be able to find them
