@meet I encourage you to be a bit more self-reliant. A search for "syslinux MENU BACKGROUND" would have been enough. https://wiki.syslinux.org/wiki/index.php?title=Menu#MENU_RESOLUTION https://wiki.syslinux.org/wiki/index.php?title=Common_Problems#Menu_background Check which resolutions the framebuf...

The relevant line:
DISTROS="slackware slackwarepatches slacky salix alien ponce slackonly"

Old Dell Latitude D610 Wireless missing

I rebooted the router and things have been connecting just fine on the notebook every since.
:good:

And then you'll be the administrator - lifelong responsible - phone calls at 3am included. :)

Yep, it looks similar. However, it would be worth trying to copy the firmware files into /lib/firmware/ if not already done. firmware download: https://packages.slackware.com/?r=slackware-14.2&p=ipw2200-fw-3.1-fw-1.txz I would extract the firmware files and manually copy them into /lib/firmware > re...
