    Exclamation Wireless Internet Connection

    Dear friends,

    I have recently installed Ubuntu 13.04 on my Asus K53 Laptop. However I was unable to install my internet driver. I am from India and using Reliance Netconnect. The install.sh script is showing error "Can not continue without qt3 runtime library". I am unable to install the same without internet. In this regard if you could point to me how I can download those packages alongwith dependencies offline (if at all possible) and install them manually, I'd be very much grateful, otherwise I will have to say goodbye to using Linux on my laptop.
    Also if I use KDE Linux distros, like Opensuse, Kubuntu, etc. will this problem still arise?

    Regards

    I'm sorry I can't do that as I uninstalled my Linux install. I want to be able to fully be able to use it before I can continue again.
    I have been able to mount my device and it is detecting and I can even access the folder to install the device driver, however it requires the aforementioned details.

    Regards

    The fact that I registered to the forum and posted this topic should answer your question, the rest is your decision. Thanks for the warm hospitality so far.

    Hi, you can run the commands from the livecd or liveusb, but anything you do will be gone when you reboot.

    In almost all cases we can get the wireless to work but it is best after you have installed ubuntu.
    Thanks

    It's going to be hard for anyone to help you if you've not got a linux install

    Once you've got it reinstalled, run the commands and post the output .

    As far as downloading packages offline that's not going to be possible - but you can get them from outside an install.

    You can get packages from here as necessary - http://packages.ubuntu.com/

    You might also like to have a look here - I've seen similar issues here in the past - I did a quick search on an 'ubuntu' search engine that I use - http://www.google.com/cse?cx=0122857...ect&gsc.page=1

    This what I meant. Was wondering if you still want help as you don't have Ubuntu installed.

    Re: Wireless Internet Connection

    It is actually easy to set up.(in ubuntu)
    1. Go to Network Connectiions
    2. Click Add
    3. Choose which VPN is applicable to you(mine is mobile broadband as I am using internet modem from my service provider).
    4. Click on create.
    5. Get your 'Broadband provider's name','billing' etc from your service provider-mine is ZTE WCDMA Technologies MSM and continue
    6. Choose your country and click continue.
    7. Choose your provider from the list.
    8. Choose your billing plan.(check the pack of the product you purchased,normally contained there).Or go to windows and look at your service providers interface 'network settings' for these information)
    9.Create your network.
    10. Insert your modem and look at the top of your desktop(connections tab), you should see your newly created network(suffixed with '1').Click on it to connect.
    11. Enjoy your browsing...

    This does not seem to work with reliance netconnect. Can you confirm it worked for you.
