I've got a Toshiba A210-1B1 and had issues using drivers for the Realtek 8187b which were on the web, managed to install via ndiswrapper using the Win XP driver off the Toshiba site as it wouldn't work with any other driver.
It now manages to see the networks:
and displays this with iwconfig:
Cell 01 - Address: 00:1B:2F:6E:1E:0C
Frequency:2.412 GHz (Channel 1)
Quality:62/100 Signal level:-56 dBm Noise level:-96 dBm

11 Mb/s; 12 Mb/s; 18 Mb/s; 24 Mb/s; 36 Mb/s
48 Mb/s; 54 Mb/s
It does ask for the network key, I input this but it doesn't seem to do anything.
lo no wireless extensions.
eth0 no wireless extensions.

Not sure what to do next, note that I've tried WPA, WEP and no authentication?
Please help me on my first cup of ubuntu!
