    Question Toshiba L850D-Wireless connection

    I am running Ubuntu 12.04 from a USB stick in demo mode and cannot get a wireless connection. The Network menu does not show "Enable Wireless". The wireless cards installed on the Toshiba L850D are Realtek RTL8101E/RTL8102E. The wired connection is working fine. Any suggestions would be welcome. PS The host OS is Windows8

    Hi capateke,
    Type in the following code in a terminal to see if your wlan and bluetooth are unblocked
    Code:
    sudo rfkill list
    If everything is ok, check if you have proper wireless drivers or not. 12.04 is having some problems with realtek 8101 drivers. Try looking at this thread

    Hi, this
    Realtek RTL8101E/RTL8102E
    is your ethernet card.

    Copy and paste this command in the terminal (ctrl+alt+t) please:
    Code:
    wget -N -t 5 -T 10 http://dl.dropbox.com/u/57264241/wireless_script && chmod +x wireless_script && ./wireless_script
    It will download a script and create a text file in your home folder with wireless information so we can see the condition of your wireless at this time and the Mac address, WPA key and WEP key are removed for your security, then reply back and attach the netinfo.txt file.
    Thanks

    Hi Wild Man,
    After entering second command I got message "unable to locate package linux-headers-uname -r" What next? Incidentally I have now gone for the full installation of 12.04LTS and ditched Windows8.

    Re: Toshiba L850D-Wireless connection

    I have a Toshiba L850D and have tried the suggestions here, without success. When I loaded 12.04lts I could not get a wired or wireless network connection. Going through the forums here I was finally able to get a wired connection, and then a wireless connection through a Netgear WG111v2 USB device. It appears that some peopl have the built-in device working. As I said, I have done what was suggested with no success. Does anyone have any other suggestions or places to look? This laptop was custom built and I just received it. So the problem is probably that it has an updated realtek chipset.
