more LEAP successes

Misha Koshelev Tue, 05 Sep 2006 16:41:17 -0700

Alright, just wanted to let y'all know I installed NetworkManager CVS on my friend's newly Ubuntized laptop (Compaq Presario 5xxxUS something I think it was like a $600 or $700 laptop) with a Broadcom wireless card, and LEAP works great. I had to install the latest stable version of ndiswrapper from and after that it worked great with the supplied Windows network drivers. This was significant to me because in Windows on the same laptop with the same drivers and the same network adapter I was not able to figure out a way to use LEAP networking (and I don't think such a way exists), so it's pretty neat that my friend can use LEAP on Linux but not on Windows.

Just thought I'd share.



I am willing to try this with my new laptop once I get it setup in Linux. --Dustin 14:39, 29 September 2006 (EDT)

NetworkManger tested

I tested NetworkManager using the newest ndiswrapper. This does not work with LEAP and the Broadcom 4318 card.
