    Wireless Drivers Install Time?

    Hey all, I'm posting this after getting my ubuntu compatable drivers and when I restarted like it said my wireless still wouldnt work. I went into additional drivers and found it was not activated. I clicked activate and it brought me to a donwloading and installing driver screen. I've been here the past 2 hours with no progress, anything I did wrong or is this normal?

    Wireless Drivers Install Problem?

    Hi all, attempting to install ubuntu compatable wireless drivers via Additional drivers.When I pressed activate, a window popped up that said "downloading and installing drivers" with a black box moving back and forth in the loading area. Its been like this for 3 hours and I dont know what to do. Should it take this long? did I do something wrong?

    dont forget to....
    sudo apt-get install linux-headers$(uname -r | grep -Po "\-[a-z].*")
    sudo apt-get install build-essential dkms

    Download 64 AMD

    then cd to the folder you downloaded to...if it is by default Downloads...note that the "D" is uppercase
    if your default download folder is ..................................Desktop.......no te that the "D" is uppercase

    do...if....your default download folder is Downloads...go there and drag and drop your file to Desktop

    to avoid typo...it is better to copy and paste the commnds
    any problems..please post
