A tip for anyone who has tried to install a wifi card or adapter after installing Mageia 1 or 2 from DVD, only to find that it doesn't work.

Using the Mageia Control Centre, go to Software Management -> Configure media sources, and then disable (untick) the line that says CD-ROM Mageia 1 or 2 - i586 or x86_64 DVD.

If that is the only line, then click on "Add" at the side and select "Full Set of Sources".
(This assumes that you are connected to the Internet, somehow.)

Wait for the source indexes to download, and then make sure that Core Release, Core Updates, Nonfree release, Nonfree Update boxes are ticked.

Then go to the file menu and select "Update" and select all and update.

After you have done all of these things, you can leave the Software Manager and go to "Network & Internet" -> Set up a new network interface -> Wireless ....

Everything should work, as long as the "Nonfree" repos are enabled and you have internet access for the purposes of the installation.

You should then be able to remove the ethernet cable or 3G Modem and use wifi.
