Hi, everyone. To be politically correct I am vi challenged.

I have been trying to edit the /etc/pcmcia/wlan-ng.conf file so that I can get my Linksys WFC12 card working in my SL5500.

I input the lines for the card but I can not figure out how to key the ESC command to save and exit vi. I have tried the Cancel key, the FN + Cancel and what seems like every other key combination. But I can't seem to get into the command mode to return to the shell prompt.

Please help those who can not help themselves.

Try the big Cancel button and then hit the 'z'

vi likes ESC and :
so that would be CANCEL and Fn-h

ESC : wq !

CANCEL Fn-h wq !

Thaks for the replies guys, with your help I got it figured out.

I was pressing the Cancel button but I wasn't keying the ":" right after to get it into command mode.

Much abliged,
