[SOLVED] RTL8191SEvB Wireless LAN controller rev 10 driver

Postby dele » Jun 19th, '11, 07:35

Congratulations again. I just downloaded and installed Mageia 1 and I like it. I need the Wireless Network driver for my Netbook that I installed it on. It is Intel Atom 450.

The network card is RTL8191SEvB Wireless LAN Controller (r8192se_pci.)

Have you activated the non-free repos?
Try to install kernel-firmware-extra.

Could you walk me through how to install kernel-firmware-extra? I found the driver at http://218.210.127.131/downloads/downlo ... =true#2262 but I don't know what to do next to install it. I was hoping I will just get an rpm to install.

There is a rpm: kernel-firmware-extra-20110517-1.mga1.noarch.rpm

It's in the 'nonfree' repo. Be sure the repos are setup and the package manager set to show 'All' and not 'packages with GUI'
