    Netbook and linux wifi woes

    I'm using a Samsung N210 netbook (has a Realtek 8192 wireless card).

    If I install Fedora, I get no wireless at all - I understand RHEL clones don't support the card.

    I installed Ubuntu, and whilst it recognises the card, it will not allow me to connect - rejects the WPA2 security key (a known bug I believe).

    Can anyone either offer a solution to either of the above, or suggest a linux version that will allow me to connect to wifi successfully with this card

    CHeers!

    ^^^ What he said. If no luck there, you could try connecting using a wired connection, then getting all the updates and (in the case of Ubuntu) restricted drivers. You could also look for restricted drivers blobs in the repos.
