I have 5.0.4 installed (dual boot with Windersninetyeight) on an old
Compaq 7770DMT Armada.
I have a D-Link DWL-650+ wireless card - picked up by Ubuntu 'out-of-the
I've set everything to default (on the w'router) so there's no WEP etc.
This is in my living room - the only place I can get a wireless connection.
Ubuntu recognises the card and I've set the wlan0 as default and it
starts on boot BUT the connection seem quite unstable with Ubuntu but
less so with Winders (!!!!!) - is this something to do with Ubuntu's
connection to the card????
Is there a wireless signal strength app I can install to check what it's
able to 'see'?
Is there something else I need to look at?
I'm new to wireless in Linux, and so would appreciate any assistance
able to be offered. I'm assuming there are other settings I need to
change, but I'm afraid I'm not sure where to start.
(Footnote. Still can't get sound going (ESS 1868 I think, but I'm
working on that - unless someone has resolved this and has a few notes
for me :)
