Hey...

Installed Ubuntu with no problems and my wireless card was detected and it connected to the net right away. My only problem was that the net was abit slow compared to Vista, so I ran ndiswrapper and installed the correct drivers for the network card.

Now my problem is that it won't connect to the wireless network at all. I would like to revert my wireless card drivers back to the default ones that were used when I first installed Ubuntu, anyone know how I would do that?

Thanks.

Do you know what your previous driver was? If not, can you post the results of:

lspci -nn
ndiswrapper -l

no idea what the driver was..


lspci -nn

04:05.0 Network Controller [0280]: RaLink RT2500 802.11g Cardbus/mini-PCI [1814:0201] (rev01)

(guessing you only needed that part about the network card)


ndiswrapper -1

I don't currently have the windows driver installed since I've been trying to get it to use a default one, so nothing showed up.

You might try:

sudo mopdrobe -r ndiswrapper rt2500pci
sudo modprobe rt2500pci
sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart

Just add the following:

echo rt2500pci | sudo tee -a /etc/modules
and that should get it to load automatically when you boot.
