Hello, I am new to the site as a registered user, but have read some of the threads, and so far none of them are addressing quite what I need. I hope I am not stepping on any toes by doing this, please inform me if I am so I don't make the same mistake twice.
Anyway, about a year ago I bought a dell mini 9, and it came pre-loaded with the hardy heron edition of Ubuntu 8, and I had no problems with getting it connected to either the wireless or the wired connections.
In January my school switched its wireless to be protected by SecureW2, which wad not compatible with Linux, but thanks to a few of my friends, we figured out how to get our linux systems on the network (even though our school specifically stated it would not support linux, just mac and windows). One day I let my friend use my computer, and he accidentally started an update, but canceled it before it finished, leaving the dependency trees in shambles, and I had to wipe the computer, and I chose to install Ubuntu 10.04 netbook remix on it. When I did this it said it needed to download and install new wireless and wired drivers. But, it can't connect to the internet...so it can't get the drivers. (I am typing this from my other laptop, which has windows on it, which can connect to both wired and wireless). Is there a place that I can install these drivers using a windows laptop, onto a flash drive and then install it on the dell mini? (That is what I did to install 10.04 on my mini).
Thanks in advance!
Let me know if you need anymore information!
