hello i tried many linux distros but the only one that recognized my home wireless network was mandriva and i was hoping to linux mint or pclinux,i get to the stage where it asks for ssid-mode-bssid-mac address-mtu and i am lost,i can see my i.p. address and i think the ssid is what i call my home network,but i am not sure about mac address and bssid? any ideas please? thank you.
I've tried PC Linux OS and Ubuntu and the later is the only one I could get to run my wireless on laptop without trying to find drivers on another machine and burning to disc the other problem was I was trying them from live CD and as laptop only has one drive that would not have been possible.
