Re: Problems with POS RTL8187B wifi card (built-in)

An update. Kernel 2.6.27rc2 fixes the wifi issue.

Re: Problems with POS RTL8187B wifi card (built-in)

I have already installed latest squashfs module and tools, and can open the livecd.squashfs image, but when I try to put it back together the process always stalls at 14%, and I would like ...
