    How to install wifi driver on unbuntu?

    I just recently installed Ubuntu on my Lenovo ThinkPad E540, now I can not figure out how to install the driver for the wireless adopter. I've seen people with the exact same computer and have the wifi working, so there must be a way to install it.


    Please help. Thanks

    Some things stopped working after i installed Ubuntu on my laptop

    Not only the wifi, also the indicator lights for Cap-lock and number-lock. Are these problems solvable? My laptop is Lenovo's ThinkPad E540 if that helps.

    So the wifi worked when you were testing it in live mode before install?

    I suspect it could be a part of your wifi needs blacklisting

    Threads merged
    The Community Java Wiki * The Community ATI Driver Wiki * Find what you need in the Ubuntu Community wikis

    And seeing the terror on the faces of the people, QIII did speak to them, saying "Fear not the Terminal, for it is a road both swift and secure to the Great Mysteries of Linux without passing through the dangers of The Land of Ten Thousand Competing Desktop Environments."
