I'm running a Dell XPS 15, OS: Windows 7 Ultimate x64 Today I tried installing Linux Mint next to Windows 7, thought I might like it. When I booted from the live cd, and tested Mint for a while, I noticed that I couldn't connect to my wireless network. I wasn't able to enable my wireless network adapter. Because I didn't like that, I rebooted my PC in Windows again, and decided to leave Linux for what it is. But the problem is that in my Windows 7 machine, I also can't make internet connection, my wireless adapter seems to …

I am new to using Linux (Ubuntu 10.10) and am having trouble connecting wirelessly to my HP C4580 printer. I have already made sure that hplip-3.1.10.run is installed but honestly do not know what to do next. I have tried to add the printer and it works fine with the USB cable. I have tried searching for a network printer using the host name but it finds nothing. Any help is appreciated. Thanks, Stacey

Hello, I'm Dammy. Theres a problem i've been battling with for the past few days and i was hoping someone could help me out.

(Also I can't get my new Kindle to connect, but one thing at a time here.)

I have a [B]WPA2 [/B]encrypted wireless network at home. If I give someone the security key to join the network, would they be able to packet sniff any data on the network (for example, to see what i'm doing on the internet?) Also, would it make any difference if I used [B]Wi-Fi Protected Setup [/B](WPS) instead, so that they wouldn't know or have access to the actual security key?

The UK has finally ratified the 802.11n standard for WiFi at last. Although we've had '802.11n-ready' kit on the market for a fair while, it hasn't been official as yet. I can only hope people in stores will be able to explain what people are buying. I say this because of what happened the last time we had anything as '(standard)-ready', which was with high definition televisions. It wasn't pretty. Essentially, the problem then was that there were too many versions of the technology around. People weren't clear what they were buying and the technical standard changed while they were …
