Ubuntu N00b in distress! - Page 2

post #11 of 13
I had a very similar problem with the wireless on my ubuntu box. The solution for me was to make sure I disabled and restriceted wireless drivers (mine showed up as Atheros Hardware Access Layer and Support for Atheros wireless LAN cards). Then find the windows driver for your wireless card and use ndiswrapper to "wrap" the kernel around that driver. More help can be found here.

hope this helps

Yeah, you see, I dont know what the hell is going on, but in my "Network Manager" I have two connections:

An ethernet connection,

And a modem connection,

I DONT HAVE A MODEM. (Aka "Point to point" Connection)

So lost....

Someone, send me somewhere helpful...

neither of my machines have modems but it still shows that too, i assume thats there by default. have you tried hooking it up directly to a wire and downloading updates and getting the restricted drivers?
