Re: wireless on Toshiba laptop
I have found that Ubuntu just works on my Toshiba laptop, no tinkering whatsoever required.
Had a bit of a problem installing both Linux Mint and Ubuntu 12.04 on a netbook but the advice on Broadcom wireless drivers to be found on this forum solved that problem painlessly.
Try running a live CD and see if that works, if it does then an installed Ubuntu will too.
