    Drivers for Linux WIFI

    Any one know where I can find drivers for a broadcom 802.11g net card....for a gateway 7210gx laptop. This is for running Redhat Fedora or something like that (I didn't quite understand just what he was running).

    I did a few searches and came up cold, but then figured someone here would possibly know and save me a lot of time (and error).
    Thanks

    There are a couple of Broadcom chipsets. AFAIK, you'll have to track down which one.

    See if you can use NdisWrapper

    They have a list of compatible cards @

    Quitmzilla is a firefox extension that gives you stats on how long you have quit smoking, how much money you\'ve saved, how much you haven\'t smoked and recent milestones. Very helpful for people who quit smoking and used to smoke at their computers... Helps out with the urges.
