My first foray into the desktop - already hit a snag. I have installed Ubuntu on a laptop with a bad ethernet port but a working wireless. However, I cannot seem to get the wireless to connect. I have gone into the network settings and manually entered the SSID and the password and still no luck. I tried search for drivers, but can't seem to find one. Thoughts/suggestions?
