    Wireless Internet not working....?

    I recently installed Ubuntu.


    I just installed ndiswrapper so I could install my wireless PCI [COLOR=blue ! important][COLOR=blue ! important]card [COLOR=blue ! important]drivers[/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR]
    .


    I did that and it is recognized and so is the network I want to connect to.


    But for some reason, it just wont connect. It will spend a long time trying to connect, but then just says "disconnected".


    What could be the problem? It's not like I have a bad connection or anything. My internet on Windows is fast.


    Thanks!

    Can you post the results when you run the following commands from a terminal in Ubuntu?

    Code:
    lspci
    
    lsusb
    
    lsmod
    
    uname -a
    
    sudo lshw -C network 
    
    ifconfig

    Well, your wireless card is a Marvell Technology Group Ltd. 88w8335 [Libertas] 802.11b/g Wireless (rev 03), and the other bolded part is your ethernet (cable) internet connection.

    Unfortunately, I've never even heard of that WiFi interface- I'm thinking it must be pretty new.

    A quick search here found these 2 threads, each of which appears to have a fix:

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...arvell+88w8335

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...arvell+88w8335

    I'd give those threads a read and see if any of that helps.

    edit: Also- you're running this 32-bit kernel: 2.6.31-14-generic
