Default get wireless internet using slax?

I'm using slax for one of my courses in school i have it installed on a flash drive and I want to use it at home a little bit to do some homework etc. I have wireless internet and in vista It just automatically detects that I have wireless and it runs fine.. how do I get this to work on slax? Like where do I get the drivers etc?

I am guessing that you are talking about Slaxware, which is linux. I would recommend that you look at Slax manuals. See if there is something there that can help you.

Also do a little google searching you might come up with what you need.

Cheers!

Ok, are you able to install a program called ndiswrapper. This program will let you install windows drivers for wireless cards in your linux distro. See if you can get it, if not I will come up with something else.

Cheers!
