From MEPIS Documentation Wiki
- "Wireless network" refers to any type of computer network that is not connected by cables of any kind.
- MEPIS comes preconfigured to autodetect most WiFi cards. Some cards will not be autodetected, but will work with some manual configuration.
- If you are a newcomer to MEPIS or wireless, please first consult the Wireless section of MEPIS User's Manual under Configuration >>> Network.
- Your wireless configuration can be fine tuned with MEPIS 8 Network Assistant. In MEPIS 6.5 and 7.0 with the Network Manager/Assistant.
- If there is no native Linux driver for your card (look here), you can use a Windows driver using Ndiswrapper or Linuxant (non-free).
