    Networking with Satelite S1000

    I had problem with Ubuntu told to use Xbuntu...Spot on....But I cant seem to install the network side. Because I want to install WINE. Any use the net.

    It a Satelite S1000, tried ifconfig, lspci and sudo lshw -C Network , which method the card was disabled...

    I'm assuming you are trying to get WIFI to work, not wired ethernet? Toshiba has used a lot of different chips, and the details matter, so if you could post some of that lspci output, that would help. The odds are fairly high that it has a not quite supported Atheros chip. If so, the things that are likely to work are either 8.04 variants with ndiswrapper and the XP driver, or 8.10 variants with the newer madwifi driver compiled from source. Which version of Xubuntu are you running?

    If you have access to a live Fedora 10 CD, that might be interesting, as that was the first thing to actually get WIFI right out of the box on my toshiba satellite A215-S5818 laptop (atheros AR5006EG, AR2423 chip).

    Post the output from these commands.

    A disabled card may be due to BIOS setting, Windows turning off network adapter due to "power-saving" or incorrect driver.

    I don't think it is. pan0 is generally for Bluetooth networking:

    Does ifconfig / lshw list any other network interfaces?
