    Wireless card not detected? No network even shows up! Help!

    First time Ubuntu user, but I hope I catch on quickly

    However I'm having a problem... I can't find out how to install my wireless card drivers onto my laptop.

    I updated all of Ubuntu and I tried to use NDISWrapper.. but to no avail.
    I believe I have an 802.11 b/g/n wireless card adapter.

    Can you guys give me any help?




    Also: How can I get my music I have on my windows partition to be accessible while I'm on Ubuntu?

    Do you mind explaining to me what I'm looking for? So I can learn this for my other systems I'll be converting to Linux.


    edit: Attempted rfkill list * and the terminal said it was a bogus command.

    Hi, i am not seeing anything in your
    lsmod file that relates to a wifi card,
    as in 80211 xxx and there is missing
    data in the lspci 0280 output, did you just
    load ubuntu? and more importantly did you do..
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    after you loaded? Try that if you have not
    and repeat the last commands. The rfkill list all
    is just that..all not wildcard *
    thanks.

    Yes, I just got Ubuntu 12.10
    I updated everything right after I installed Ubuntu.

    I tried to use
    Code:
    rfkill list all
    But it didn't work, I'll run all the commands again.

    Well let me clear that up, I tried to install NDISWrapper, but I kept getting errors left and right, it wouldn't create a directory for the files for installation

    I tried Step 5: the Modprobe just for the heck of it and got this:

    Code:
    phillip@ubuntu:~$ sudo modprobe rtl8723e[sudo] password for phillip: 
    FATAL: Module rtl8723e not found.
    phillip@ubuntu:~$ ^C
    phillip@ubuntu:~$

    It'll download the drivers and everything, however it won't install them it looks like

    I downloaded the drivers manually via the Dropbox link and put them in a folder in my desktop just in case that can be used for me
    The path is: /home/phillip/Desktop/Wireless/Rtl1/rtl_92ce_92se_92de_8723ae_linux_mac80211_0006.0514 .2012




    Also: I got NDISWrapper to work, however I don't know which inf file to select
