Problems with onboard WiFi card.

Recommended Posts

Ok, so I've just got new laptop (really cheap one, no-name brand) and I installed Mac OS X 10.4.8 from Kalyway's iso. Everything went good, I even had wired internet connection without any problems. The problem is that I can't get WiFi card working. It looks like OS don't see it. The worst thing is that I don't know exact model or even manufacturer of it. On ubuntu it uses the Ralink 73 driver and on windows i have  padriverckage from MSI with ra73.dll (or something like this)

One more thing that is interesting is that i have one more protocol in Connection Propeteries (Windows XP) it's "AEGIS protocol (IEEE 802.1x) v."


EDIT: I wan't to add that I tried with drivers from ralink website, they didn't work (or I don't know how to use them)


If it can help there's my system informations (all what i can get):


WiFi card (Windows XP name): 802.11g Mini Card Wireless Adapter

CPU:  Mobile Intel Celeron M 430, 1733 MHz (13 x 133)

Mainboard name: DixonsXP

Chipset: Mobile Intel Calistoga-GML i940GML/i943GML

BIOS: Phoenix (01/12/07)

Graphics card: Mobile Intel® 945GM Express Chipset Family (128 MB)

Sound card: Realtek ALC883 @ Intel 82801GBM ICH7-M - High Definition Audio Controller [b-0] (working with azalia package)


If you can help, please feel free to reply.





PS. Sorry for my english. I'm still learning ;)
