Wireless Network Configuration

Up to this point I have been unable to even enable WiFi, much less configure a network to access. However, I have installed ndiswrapper in the past on other Linux machines and I am going to attempt to figure out a way to do the same on the Chrome OS. Currently an iwconfig throws back "no wireless extensions." so there is plenty of work to be done. If anyone has any ideas on making this a smoother process or any tutorials on installing ndiswrapper entirely from the terminal it would be a great help. I will be updating with any progress I make, hopefully I can get wireless working soon because I may be interested in using the Chrome OS on my netbook if I can.

I am just waiting for Chrome OS to support protected WiFi networks. There is no way I am going to open up my home network just so I can try this OS on my netbook.

I would think it would have to be added to the source code very soon.

Hello Warai.

If your netbook usually supports your wireless adapater in Ubuntu Karmic Koala, it'll work out of the box on Chrome OS.

I've detailed the steps to take on my blog, which you can see here
