Re: Toshiba Satellite P205: Wi-Fi + Ubuntu 8.04
Doctor 3945 is here to help. What have you tried so far? When you click the two little computer icon (Network Manager applet), do you see networks to connect to? Do you see yours? When you give any encryption details, does it attempt to connect?
Please hook up the ethernet cable and do, in a terminal:
There is evidently a better driver for your 3945ABG in there.
sudo apt-get install linux-backports-modules-hardy-generic
Finally, Network Manager will not want to activate your wireless if you have a working ethernet connection, so detach the wire before you attempt to connect wirelessly.
