    I figured you'd come back with some pretty useless info

    No offence, but windows doesn't provide the kind of info we need.

    But I can tell you, it will probably work.

    What you could do is:

    1. Make a bootable USB of Xubuntu

    2. When it's up and running (if the wireless isn't working, and it probably won't) open a terminal and paste in this:

    Code:
    lspci -nnk | grep -iA2 net
    You will have to save it to a file to get it to us here. So it will require some ingenuity on your part.

    See what happens though when you boot Xubuntu, because IIRC it had some broadcom drivers in the live system.

    Assuming it's a built in wireless and not a dongle?

    Read this: https://www.linuxdistrocommunity.com...ad.php?tid=524
    Explains how to get Xubuntu, Mint, Snowlinux, Peppermint, Puppy Slacko, etc, on to flash drive and make them bootable.

    You will need a wired connection to get wireless working, except on Puppy Slacko which has a repostory of wireless drivers.

    Ubuntu, Kubuntu, and most of the other CPU/GUI intensive Distros shouldwork on the newer netbooks with a 4GB or better of RAM. Assuming the graphics card is decent.

    If it where me, I would install Xubuntu, Mint, Snowlinux, or Peppermint. Then put Puppy Slacko on the USB full time.

    It came with 1GB and worked
    Originally it shipped with win7 and was a dog with 1GB

    I wiped the HD and split it up for daily use and sandboxing
    Currently the HD looks like this
