I have a Dell Inspiron laptop which ran XP but now seems partly corrupted and unable to boot. I am using Damn Small Linux but need to know how to connect to my house's wireless LAN.

Please could someone explain step-by-step instructions to a total newbie like myself.

Much appreciated.

I have a similar question. Did you happen to find an answer for this one? I have an HP Pavilion.

I'm afraid not. Please do post here if you find anyone helpful. Thanks.

It depends on what type of wireless card you have.  Give me that info and we'll go from there.

I'm don't know how to find that out. I'll have a look in the options via the boot menu and get back to you though. Thanks.

and if you could give us your info from dmesg

Code Sample

$ dmesg > dmesg.txt

Then either give us a link to it or, well you get the idea.

Or you can give me your laptop information such as model number and we can find out the spec and see how we can help.
