Hi

I have installed Ubuntu 8.10. My laptop (JFT00) has a wireless and a wired netword card:

so the two interfaces are detected by Ubuntu, but no wireless network is detected (I am sure there are many wireless network, using Windows and Ubuntu 8.10 in other Laptop the wireless networks are detected).

I have installed ndiswrapper, the driver is installed ok, but not loaded, so now there is no wireless interface in Networkmanager:

What next can I do?

I have that trouble with 64 bit intrepid and an Intel 4695 card, I had it with gutsy too though hardy worked OK. I fixed it by switching to wicd instead of network manager (I was too lazy to switch back to wicd with hardy since NM was doing OK but IMO wicd does have a much more appealing interface).

Since wicd worked straight away I didn't bother trying to fix network manager.

wicd is here:

http://wicd.sourceforge.net/

eta: with the latest upgrades wicd has stopped working too, I'm going to look into ndiswrapper
