Okay, thanks to Realzippy for finding a guide that helped me finally get Ubuntu 10.04 installed perfectly, kudos to you my man:KS. Only one problem left. I don't know if my wireless card works. I don't know how to "scan" for a network. And I have nothing in the top right panel like I use to. I have a Toshiba A505-s6033, and no idea what type of network card is in it.. Anyone know of a fix?

Hi,

Even if the wireless card isn't working, you should have a connection icon in the top right. Right click on that and you should be able to 'enable wireless'.

What about the wireless indicator light? Is it on?

Can you post the output of 'lspci' and also 'ifconfig', please?

Thanks!
