    It's. Absolutely. Maddening! Somehow, it'd almost be easier to deal with if it happened every time I booted into XP, or if it happened after booting into another distro. But no, only XP. And there's never anything abnormally wrong with those XP sessions. I've seen somebody suggest it's a problem with hibernate/suspend, but I don't do either.

    It's working now. I'm going to check my other 7.10 install later and see if it's also working there. If it isn't, I'll assume I did something right with this one, and try to figure out exactly what, so I can post the info on the off chance it will help anyone who runs into this at some point.

    Thanks for being willing to help, wieman01. You're a saint :)

    Thanks, mate.

    Wipe out XP... That's the best advice I can give. Lol!

    Re: HOWTO: RT2500, etc. wireless cards

    I'm a total noob when it comes to Linux; I only installed it yesterday. I can't seem to get my wireless internet to work. I found this tutorial but, because I'm such a noob, am unable to follow it. First of all, what's "Synaptic/Adept?" Then, what am I supposed to do with those lines under quote? Any help would be great! The wireless card/connection isn't showing up at all in Networking. I have a Linksys WMP54GX Wireless G PCI Adapter with SRX.

    Hello Scoobylu, welcome to Ubuntu. (Hey, that rhymes!)
    You might want to try the steps from one of these guides:

    https://help.ubuntu.com/8.04/interne...eshooting.html
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=621088 (Google "WMP54GX Ubuntu")

    If you have problems, I suggest posting on the second thread mentioned above. That one is specifically about the WMP54gx. It looks like a number of of posters report success with bmullan's directions, so it looks hopeful that things should work out for you too.

    PS. According to http://ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net/j...3/id,list_g-l/, you have an Airgo networks chipset. This thread is about cards with the RT2500 chipset. So it's probably a good thing you didn't go very far with weiman01's instructions.

    Somewhat very similar to Scoobylu I'm also a complete noob- enter problem, I've tried to get my wireless card running using the ndiswrapper, but if you look at the attached picture it says that it cannot be installed on my Pc for some reason... Any ideas,

    Thanks

    Open the package manager... called Synaptic. You will find it there as well.

    I think the package you need is called
    ndiswrapper-utils-1.9.

    If Synaptic does not work, you could open a terminal and type

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install ndiswrapper-utils-1.9
    If that does not work, post any error messages from the line above and, in addition, the output of

    Code:
    cat /etc/apt/sources.list

    for sudo apt-get install ndiswrapper-utils-1.9 we get:

    E: Couldn't find package ndiswrapper-utils-1.9
