    nVidia nForce 590 SLI something or other
    Motherboard M2N32-SLI Deluxe
    I believe I know what the problem is, and perhaps how to fix it.
    I was using RTL8187 for the on-board wireless card, which I know does not work, but also had no idea how to replace it. I may now know how to fix this problem.

    Okay. I lied. I have no clue what to use instead of RTL8187. Can someone point me in the right direction.

    sudo lshw -C network:
    *-network DISABLED
    This plus no scan results = bad news. So where did you get the driver from eventually? Are you on a 64-bit Ubuntu installation by chance?

    What again is the chipset of your wireless adapter?

    And does the Windows driver that you are using support PEAP?

    Chipset: RTL8187
    I have several options available as to what windows driver to use.
    They all came on the CD for my Motherboard
    Which version would you recommend (98/ME/XP/Vista?)
    Or something totally different.

    Re: HOWTO: Wireless Security - WPA1, WPA2, LEAP, etc.

    I recommend the XP version, 32-bit if you are running Ubuntu 32-bit.

    Also, is your adapter listed anywhere here?

    Unfortunately the adapter doesn't really have a 'name', as it is built into the motherboard. but I can check the list and see.

    But, the board is the M2N32 SLI Deluxe Wifi edition.

    It looks like I could try the 8187B, L or one of the others from the site. that may do the trick. Ill just have to get it to my computer.
