I should have mentioned I tried the driver from Dell. I even looked at the original specs to verify which card was installed. It's the Broadcom Mini-PCI 1350 or 1370. Not sure off the top of my head. For some reason Windows won't find the driver automatically. If I take it by the hand and lead it to the driver, it gets busy installing it then I get the
and "The device did not install successfully......etc., etc., error. Wired works just fine.
I was actually thinking Ubuntu but I'm only mildly familiar with Linux so I need some advice on which version to use if that's even a factor. The primary reason I'm dicking around with this is that I need something for my wife to play Pogo games on so I can use my desktop for all the things I need to do such as web site maintenance, music/photo/video editing, etc.. For that reason, I don't know if Pogo supports any OS besides Windows & Mac.
Still have my 3 yo HP laptop but the video chip is fubar and I'm looking for a motherboard for just an arm instead of an arm and a leg. Found a couple on eBay but not 100% sure whether they're 100% and thus far no response from sellers. Most seem to have something wrong with them. I don't have the tools to attempt to re-solder the video. I also don't know, with my hands shaking like they are from nerve damage, if I'd even want to risk applying that much heat near the main board even if I had the tools.
I'm going to keep plugging away at it to see what, if anything, I can get to work. Worse comes to worst I'll just buy a cheap switch, make a patch cord, run it from the entertainment center under the rug in the living room to Karen's favorite chair and let her win her badges there!
Thanks for the help!
