Hi guys,

I've installed SL6 on 3 (among 5) laptops in my household without a problem. However, SL couldn't recognize wifi on the other 2, which are actually of the same model. Other distro with newer kernel work just fine.

If I install the long-term kernel package from ELRepo, would it include all the drivers, including for wifi? Or should I go with the specific driver package?

Thanks smile.gif

You need to provide detailed information about your hardware. Output from 'lspci -nn' will help, for example.
