    Re: Can't find Linux wireless card for Centrino Wireless-N 100

    Please post the output of:

    Code:
    uname -r
    Why am I asking this? Because according to Intel Linux Wireless you need kernel version 2.6.37 or greater for your card to work.

    What network are you trying to connect too?
    Thank you
