Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection (rev 02)
Intel Corporation 82801H (ICH8 Family) HD Audio Controller (rev 03)


These are the hardwares not working in my linux. I was using windows xp previously and curently, dual-booting with linux. The problem is there is no sound even though i turned the sound volume to the maximnum, i tried to do hardware test, but no sound too(sound test failed). I tried to connect to the internet(wifi), but cant. While in windows, i could do all those thing without any problems.

Thanks in advanced.

That's two totally separate problems, but oh well...

You might want to do a search for "wifi" in Synaptic to see if there are any useful packages. I can see "kwifimanager" and "mintwifi".

You might also want to search for "wifi" and "no sound" on these fora to see if anyone else has had luck solving a similar problem.

This page (http://intellinuxwireless.org/) seems to have info on your network controller.

This page (http://hardware4linux.info/component/21335/) seems to have info on your sound controller.

I have found a page (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+bug/122560) with info on your hardware working with some versions of the Linux kernels and not with others.

Please go to the command line and enter these commands. Paste the output here:



uname -a
cat /etc/lsb-release

This worked right out of the box with 7.10. I haven't upgraded to 8.04, and I doubt I will for a while. If you keep having trouble, go ahead and get the older release... Greased lightning!

OK, great, you did the second command. You are on Hardy.

What about the first command though?

It says that my ubuntu is uptodate. What should i do? I have followed the link's instruction, but my device is not compatible. When i checked in the device manager, most of my hardwares are not detected(there were question marks), maybe it doesnt detect my drivers? is there any drivers around for linux?
