View Full Version : [ubuntu] Trying to tell if Card is properly installed

April 30th, 2009, 09:09 PM
Hi, I just installed Ubuntu 9.04 last night and am playing around with getting my encore ENLWI-G2 wireless card. I looked around these forums and found that the driver is supposed to be on the default load so I was told to type this into a terminal:

sudo lshw -C network
Here is the output :

description: Ethernet controller
product: RTL-8185 IEEE 802.11a/b/g Wireless LAN Controller
vendor: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd.
physical id: 7
bus info: pci@0000:01:07.0
version: 20
width: 32 bits
clock: 33MHz
capabilities: pm cap_list
configuration: driver=rtl8180 latency=64 maxlatency=64 mingnt=32 module=rtl8180

*-network DISABLED

logical name: pan0
serial: 26:cc:18:be:85:6a
capabilities: ethernet physical
configuration: broadcast=yes driver=bridge driverversion=2.3 firmware=N/A
link=yes multicast=yes

There may be some misspellings because I am copying it from one screen to another. I am unsure if that means it is installed correctly or not. When I type in iwconfig I get:

lo no wireless extensions
eth0 no wireless extensions
pan0 no wireless extensions

I am confused as to where to go from here. It does not show up any wireless networks that I can see. Can anyone steer me in the right way?
