    Re: Connecting to wifi

    Well if you've got the spare cash and don't mind parting with it.......

    .....best bet is to take your eeepc to the shop and test the wireless there before you buy.

    You may get more help here yet. I'd give it at least 24 hours.

    Re: Connecting to wifi

    nothingspecial, apart form the wifi problem, Ubuntu in the EeePC is like having a new, fast, notebook. A new card would cost me about GBP 15 - I reckion if that's the only cost I've had a good deal. I'll take your advice about hanging on for a bit, though.

    collisionystm, I was wondering about the Intel 4965AGN. According to Intel there is a Linux driver for it though I see there is a * after Linux. Not sure if that is significant.

    Re: Connecting to wifi

    Hi, for some reason that command did not show the exact card and chip it is using, please try these three commands, maybe they will show it.
    Code:
    lspci -nnk | grep -iA2 net
    Code:
    lsusb
    Code:
    sudo pccardctl ident
    Thank you

    Re: Connecting to wifi

    Hi, your card still did not show up.

    You might want to check in your bios and see if there is a setting in there to turn it on, and see if a fn key will turn it on so we can see it, that will not get it working we will still need to install a driver but it must be detectable first.
    Thank you

    Good call! Onboard WLAN was disabled It has now been enabled.

    Code:

    Actually, although I am new to this, I think this set is good news - in that we now have

    Code:
    Network controller [0280]: Ralink corp. RT2860 [1814:0781]
    Which I think has a Linux driver. I'm going to have to turn in now, or divorce will threaten - but I will be keen to see, in the morning, if you have been able to give me further advice.

    Re: Connecting to wifi

    Hi, give me a few minutes to look up this wireless card to make sure we use the correct driver and how to install it.
    Thank you
