The linux distribution must have to be the kernel 2.6.34 or higher if you want to have the Ethernet connection working out-of-the-box.

Update: With OpenSuse 12.1 or Ubuntu 11.10 all the hardware work out of the box. If you use Fedora 15 or 16, you have to install the kmod-wl driver for wireless.

I'm running Fedora 14 with a few problems, wifi connection and audio card especially.

How can I be sure I have to update the BIOS.

My model is a L635-13M PSK04E-07600UFR

Thanks for helping.
