View Full Version : [ubuntu] compat wireless drivers

July 8th, 2009, 08:16 PM

I have a rtl8187b wireless card in my laptop. I am using Ubuntu hardy heron which does not recognize this card. I recently heard that the compat wireless drivers support my card on hardy. I downloaded the drivers from this link

I followed the given instructions to compile and load the drivers. The drivers compiled and loaded perfectly but when I rebooted, I still cant find any wireless networks. I am assuming that I have to change some config file somewhere but I am not sure. I was wondering if any of you could suggest a solution
