Hi I need to know what Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy uses as default to find wireless card. I had a graphics driver problem and had to install an updated driver in the process I had to disable drivers and whatever I disabled also caused my wireless card to not be detected anymore. When I first installed my Ubuntu it worked perfect. I have a Linksys pci wirless card. Also the internet seemed alot faster before I disabled drivers. I have an XfXnForce630i motherboard with 7150 graphics. I know in windows Xp I had to install Ethernet drivers to get the internet to work I just wonder if there were drivers for the ethernet that I may have disabled also. when I disabled the drivers I serched synaptic for nvidia and I disabled almost everything in that search. Thanks!

When I first installed ubuntu I had to install ubuntu 7.1 Gibbon because Hardy wouldn't install then I upgraded to hardy and did all the updates and my wireless was recognized I believe it is the broadcom sta wireless driver but it is not showing anything when I go to system-administration-hardware-
it says no proprietary drivers are in use on this system. I know this is because I had to remove alot of packages in synaptic to install my new graphics driver. I just need to know how I can get the driver back for my wireless. Thanks
