It would be easier to explain good enough IF it was OK to type in
But still The problem is about Wifi & not being able to set ESSID's &
uping the network properly.
If the card would work properly during ANY boot no matter which iso
you're using the problem won't be there anymore.
If I can boot Ubuntu both Live & full-DVD-version & I've got no problem
connecting to WiFi this should be an easy task.
Perhaps we could display a message for anyone in the first stage if the
card won't work properly & the reason why. Just an idea.
P.S. We do live in a free country. At least I thought we were. D.S
