best wifi manager to this?

Post by romulo27 » Mon May 22, 2017 8:26 pm

well, i was testing on the test laptop i have, and i have a big problem since i installed it


my ethernet card dont work, and my wifi ones doesnt too
i know i can get this to work somehow, because i had windows xp, and wifi worked great on it, but, first i noticed that i was getting some dll errors installing those drivers, then i installed them all with no bigger troubles, until, i go use wlanconf on cmd, and it just say theres no wireless device :cry:

i can still live without this part, because i dont really use that laptop all the time, its just to play doom or snes games (both worked amazingly well on reactOS, having a better performance than the windows xp os), again, im fully aware this is in alpha, but this is really the kind of thing i wanna see become bigger, i might donate when i have some extra money, not now, because international donations where i live is the kind of not-so-common happening stuff

Thank you for trying ReactOS and reporting the experience you had with ReactOS.

At present the network interface controller (NIC) software driver supplied by ReactOS supports only a NIC based on the Realtek 8139 device. Clever people might be able to install driver software for other NICs. Unfortunately, at this time automated driver installation software usually fails to run correctly on ReactOS. Support for wireless LAN hardware and their protocols is not complete.

Current WiFi support in ROS: Only WEP, no installer stuff, only via command-line.
