I new to ubuntu, and cant get the wireless to work. Read through several posts on this issue, and followed instructions on madwifi without luck. Getting some errors when I follow instructions.

I only get wired internet connection on auto eth0.

Here are the info I learned from other posts:

Is there debian drivers for this ? Or could someone give me a step by step explanation on howto get this working.

Thanks from Norway :D
