***I AM RUNNING UBUNTU 14.04 FROM A FLASH DRIVE***
I previously tried to install ubuntu, but could not resolve an issue with my wireless (my wireless sofware switch was not supported)
On Toshiba Satellite L630-Bt2N15 and am unable to connect to my home wifi, while running from the USB. I can select a network from a list of wifi connections and it attempts to connect, but eventually tells me it is unable to connect. My router isn't having any issues as far as I can tell. Booting with windows I am not having issues and my phone connects fine. Ethernet connection works just fine.
Looking around the forums I was unable to find a solution to my issue.
One thread asked a user to run this code:
lspci -nnk | grep -iA2 net
A sticky post asked for the attached output. The same post lead me to a page that let me know my wireless hardware IS compatible
