  • Vieeeeeeeelen DANK für eure App!!! heute ubuntu von einer live-disk installiert. d.h. eigentlich kaum ein schimmer in linux. dann problem auf diesem Medion 42200 - die ubuntu-forum seiten machten nicht sehr mut. installieren mit makes und builts ????!!!!! häää??? dann die chance mit dem GUI tool. suuuper. es wurde alles nötige geladen (LAN kaben eingestöpselt) und es klappt auch nach neustart. DANKE, DANKE, DANKE!!!! hmm, der schalter/knopf funktioniert noch nicht. aber über das softare tool ist das ja auch kein problem. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, nearly no idea about linux. die my first install by a ubuntu live cd today. so now how to get wifi running on a medion 42200?!?!?! the forum tells about builts and makes? its all greek to me!! but your tool installs everything and is working after reboot. i am happy!

  • Without any further downloads and hassles the 0.7.2 version managed to get wireless working on a Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Li2727 running Linux Mint 9 (based on Ubuntu 10.04). Very happy with it.

  • I have an Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Li1718 with Ubuntu 10.04 and have just updated to the newest version 0.7.2 and every thing went as smooth as can be. Just goes to show it doesn't matter how unique you think your problem is. People like this will solve it for you and the least we can do is say thank you.
