    Welcome to Ubuntu

    Can you open a terminal (Unity Dash -> Type in Terminal), and post the output of the following commands.

    Code:
    lspci
    lsusb
    sudo lshw -C NETWORK
    Thanks.

    Command 'spc' from package 'supercat' (universe)
    Command 's2ci' from package 'scheme2c' (universe)
    Command 'xpci' from package 'xdiagnose' (main)
    Command 'lspci' from package 'pciutils' (main)
    spci: command not found

    Hmm
    a bit buggy I see.
    The card doesn't work at the moment.
