View Full Version : [ubuntu] Wireless card not being recognized by Ubuntu 8.10

January 13th, 2009, 01:55 AM
I have an Acer Aspire One ZG5, and it's got an Acer Invilink 802.11g wireless card built into it. It originally came with a downgraded version of Fedora called Linux-Linpus-Lite but I decided to swap that out for Ubuntu 8.10. I've managed to make everything else run fine but it doesnt recognize the built in wireless card. Ive gone through quite a few threads and Ive googled many many times this issue and tried many different ways of solving this but i find myself out of luck now.. :( Im sure one of you Ubuntu geniuses must know a way to get it to recognize it lol. Oh and btw, if any of u know how to tether a blackberry storm to this that'd be awesome too haha.
