In my previous post about Linux from scratch I mentioned that the WiFi hardware on that particular model had less than ideal support. The laptop in question is going to be useful for me in my astrophotography project I’m working on, but I need to find some way of getting Internet access for the initial setup and software installation. Once it’s set up I’ll have no need for Internet, barring any software updates I might need to install. So, how do I get a computer on the ‘Net when it’s WiFi is unusable?
I like messing with stuff and seeing what I can make it do. Computers, electronics, photography are my main hobbies, but I also enjoy bike riding, gel blasting and music.
