    How do I download and install the wireless card driver for a Toshiba a215 laptop?

    I have been searching for a while on how to do this, but am unable to get anywhere. Here is the wireless card I have:

    Code:
    *-network

    You might be able to download a suitable driver from the Toshiba web site.

    Because WiFi on my Toshiba laptop (with an Intel wireless chip) and its predecessor (also a Toshiba, an AR5007 if memory serves correctly) has worked "out of the box" with Ubuntu, I'm unclear on how best to install it.
