    Toshiba Satellite C660-119 No WIFI

    Hi there got a new Toshiba Satellite C660-119, very good laptop I might point out. It came with Win 7 and that's all good and dandy but I love Ubuntu. I have set-up and maintained a Ubuntu server for quite some time and also have it dual boot with win 7 on my Desktop machine so that's what I did with the laptop.

    All is working well but most of the Fn functions do not work including the WiFi on or off toggle. This is a massive issue because this laptop has no hardware WiFi switch and I can't figure for the life of me how to switch it on through the software. I used Ndiswrapper to install the winXP drivers for the WiFi which is a Realtek 8187B.

    I had a look under /etc/acpi/events and found tosh-wireless which I took a look at but couldn't figure out which key combination it wanted me to press. acpi_listen didn't work and xev didn't give me the keycodes I needed. The Fn keys that work are the one to disable the trackpad, the hibernate, lock screen, brightness adjust DOES NOT work.

    Ndiswrapper-GTK reported the Hardware to be present but my understanding is it is not turned on.
    I am currently installing 10.10 to see if that will solve anything.

    Any ideas?
    OS: Ubuntu 10.04

    Here is the latest update on this one.

    The members of the team of ubuntu Catalan warned me that there was the Realtek driver from repositories.

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:lexical/hwe-wireless
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install rtl8192ce-dkms

    From time works well.

    Credit goes to the user who provided this info to me.

    This worked perfectly for me on my Toshiba Satellite C660-153.

    After installing the drivers as above, I ran
    Code:
    sudo modprobe r8192ce_pci
    sudo ifconfig wlan0 up
    and it worked right away.

    Thanks for the solution!

    Code:
    ifconfig wlan0 up
    iwconfig wlan0 essid "your network name* key *WEP KEY*
    dhcpcd wlan0
    You could also try this. If your network doesn't need a key, just use this:
    Code:
    ifconfig wlan0 up
    iwconfig wlan0 essid *your network name*
    dhcpcd wlan0
    For wpa/2 keys:
    Code:
    ifconfig wlan0 up
    iwconfig wlan0 essid *your network name* key s:*WPA/WPA2 KEY*
    Leave any *s out.
