Okay so in my research of compatibility with the 5100 and pretty much most version of linux I have read they are compatible. Some folks were saying I had to install new drivers maybe recompile the source and the such.
Well I am running one of the lastest kernels with several variants of linux from a usb stick at the moment, the intel website said not to worry about the driver if I have the latest kernel and none of my wifi adapters are active in the gui. I did iwconfig I believe was the command and saw atleast one ( i have a usb one) I saw slan0 an a ra0. Not sure if ra0 was the modem or the internal wifi cards. I guess I need a tutorial or some more insightful advice.
