    Unhappy Fujitsu LifeBook N series, LAN and Wifi (14.04)

    Greetings I have a Fujitsu lifebook N series in great shape with pentium 4 3 gighertz proccessor and 2 gigs of ram. I have installed Ubuntu 32 bit but it does NOT recognize the Lan card (realTek) or the wireless Card (Atheros). There are also reported System Errors to be reported but of course cannot. This is my first ever failure with any version of Ubuntu. I even tried Debian and Xubuntu, these did not work either so I guess the issues is common with linux installs and this notebook.

    On boot up, I have seen a message about IRQ Conflict? I think... it came across the screen once on boot up but very fast. The only other message I have seen what was odd, was that the Radeon (900?) hardware acceleration was turned off....something like that as Ubuntu started to boot.

    . I re-installed win xp and it is fine everything works but I don't want xp.
    Any suggestions?
    Thanks,
    Joe

    Cool Re: Fujitsu LifeBook N series Install 14.04 fails

    Greetings thanks for you offer of assistance. I Re-Installed Ubuntu, but it still does not connect to either the plugged in EtherNet or the available wireless. Here are the results you asked for run as lshw and afterwards sudo lshw
    thanks,

    Re: Fujitsu LifeBook N series Install 14.04 fails

    UPDATE: When I re-installed Ubuntu 14.04 this time the Wireless Does Work but the Lan Card (RealTek) still does not appear to be working. I guess the first install was defective for some reason. This is Better but still no Lan Card, which is lots faster and would be nice.

    Re: Fujitsu LifeBook N series, LAN and Wifi (14.04)

    Just noticed in the settings details overview: why the graphics are SO S L O W..... Gallium 0.4 on llvmpipe (LLVM 3.4, 128 bits)

    Can anyone help here? I have a Radon 9600 card in my laptop and it is usually fast.

    With this graphics card I suggest a fresh install of X/Lubuntu.
