So, I've been mucking around on the forums for the last few days and have come up with nothing. My wired connection worked out of the box, but my wireless has never worked in Ubuntu and I really would like it to. I have tried madwifi both manually and automated from here and I have tried ndsi wrapper to use the drivers I use in windows with no luck once again, it says that the hardware is not present. Today, I just did a fresh load of Ubuntu to make sure that there wasn't something there that should not have been that would cause issues then I tried madwifi again and I still have no wireless. I saw this information listed on other forums and I hope that it can help someone help me

In my mucking around on the forums I found someone that has the same set up as I do on this thread, but they haven't solved the issue yet either. If you need any more information to help don't hesitate to ask and tell me how to get it, I'm still very new to Linux in general. Any help would be great.

Thank you!
