View Full Version : [ubuntu] "Unable to mount location" error--help!

May 9th, 2009, 12:21 PM
I'm a complete beginner with ubuntu.
I was planning to try getting wireless working with ndiswrapper, but when i looked under system/administration/hardware drivers there was a driver there called "alternative atheros madwifi driver."
I figure this means there *is* a native driver for the card, in which case i don't need ndiswrapper? Anyway, i activated it and restarted, and under "places/network" there is a "windows network" icon, but double clicking give the message "unable to mount location/failed to retrieve share list from server."
Can someone give me a pointer or two--or am i on completely the wrong track?
thanks in advance!:guitar:
