    Re: Wireless and wired not working for 10.04.4

    Thanks for the explanation. The dell latitude D610 is the main computer that I want to install on and it does not have issue with PAE. I only use the HP pavilion machine to test it out first.

    The last time I installed Ubuntu 12.04 on the dell, I did not have wireless either. What command should I run after I install Ubuntu to find out the correct networking card please? I'll post back the result so you can tell me the correct command to activate wireless like you did with the HP machine.

    Hi, Dell uses several different wireless cards, The wired
    ethernet however "should" just work. To determine what
    driver you need. Please post the output of..
    Code:
    lspci -nnk | grep -iA3 net
    thanks.

    Thanks. I'll post back the result. One question, Below is what I'm using the computer for

    1) Watch movies online with firefox and flash
    2) Play video using VLC

    So speed and performance are what's important to me. My dell laptop is very old (2005), max 2Gig of RAM. Do you still recommend me to install the latest 12.04 ubuntu release or if there's a smaller footprint ubuntu derivative that i can install?

    I would not call a 610 very old. It will be fine with Lubuntu 13.10.

    Ok thanks. I'll install Lubuntu 13.10 instead of Ubuntu 12.04.

    I opened a new thread called Unable to upgrade from 10.10 to 13.10 for lubuntu under installation and upgrade. After I solve that issue then I'll come back here and post the result of the wireless issue I'm having.
