    Angry where to start?

    yes. i don't know where to start looking for drivers. linux compatible drivers. presumably, maybe i could search for drivers if i could get an internet connection, but i need Ubuntu to recognize my pcmcia card.

    dell inspiron 7000, 312 Mib ram, pentium 2 processor and an 8 gig hard drive. ubuntu 8.1

    thanks if you can point me in the right direction.

    That will tell us your hardware specs and then we could try to help you to find the right drivers if needed.

    so is it possible to get a pcmcia card that will work 'out of the box' cause installing WifiDocsDriverNdiswrapper may be beyond my comprehension.

    thanks again if you can help.

    looks like i will have to pay for support. athough i don't know where to find someone to pay. i installed ndiswrapper, but that was no help. then i have this roswill adapter that claims to have linux drivers on the install cd and their website. clicking on the linux driver folder only leads to more confusion unfortunately. i am going to pull some of my hair out now, i will get back to you later.
