    Toshiba Satellite A215 S5849 Wireless Problem

    I am trying to configure the wireless on my new laptop. Follow this guide http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=112526 it said to restart my system after the restart when i loged in the system hanged then gave this error mesg
    Code:
     There was an error starting the GNOME Settting daemon	
    
    Some things such as themes, sounds or background settings may not work 
    correctly.
    
    The last error message was: 
    
    Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not 
    send a reply, the message bus security policy block the reply, the reply timeout 
    expired or the network connection was broken.
    
    GNOME will still try to restart the Settings Daemon next time you log in.
    There is not sound and the display parts like the start menu go to an older looking display.

    After a while the boot sound will go off and the start menu will return to the newer look.

    the driver i used was from the driver .exe from the Toshiba site
    Code:
    ndiswrapper -l
    net8187b : driver installed

    Thanks,
    bkief12

    Go on the link on my Signature. That should work for your wireless.

    The toshiba Wireless driver is the Vista driver. At the moment, ndiswrapper doesnt support the vista drvier.
