I am running Hardy Heron (8.04). My Wireless card is the realtek 8185L. My wired connection works fine, but it wont show my wireless. I type in lshw -C network and it shows my wireless. Any way to get my wireless to work?

I got it working!! Here's how:

1) Download ndisgtk from snaptics package manager.
2) go to system, administration, windows wireless drivers.
3) install the new file (XP driver for your wireless card) by browsing and selecting it.
4) It should install quickly and say hardware present.
5) Left click your network icon on your taskbar and it should have your access points! Enjoy!
