I have linux installed on my laptop. (Redhat 9). All works ok except sound and wireless lan. I'm not worried about the sound at all so that does not matter. But it is not recognizing the wireless card. Does anyone know of any linux drivers for the trendnet tew 226pc/tew-228pi wlan for the laptop? I have searched http://www.google.com/linux but no luck:( Thanks in advance.

If you run the following command, what info does it return concerning the exact chipset that your NIC uses:

lspci -vv | grep Eth

(Case-sensitive; the first "l" is a lower-case "L")

Weird- I know that the lspci command does normally work on RH 9.0. :?:

Try this command instead and see what you get:

less /proc/pci |grep Eth

I tried that first command you gave me logged on as root and it did work. This is the output it gave me.
