October 16th, 2009, 05:09 AM
I recently got my wireless card drivers installed using ndisgtk. The wireless card is installed but i need help configuring it.
Ive pretty much ONLY gotten the drivers install. I went to network configure, and tried automatic config. Im not even sure where to select which wireless signal to use.
Im new to ubuntu please help.

if you already tried karmic koala or version 9.04, you may want to check this LINK http://wicd.sourceforge.net/download.php

wicd will help you solve the problem in no time

if you're still on version 8.04 try ndiswrapper
1. put your UBUNTU cd on the cd-rom unit
2. go to system> administration> synaptic package manager
3. go to the menu Edit>Add CD-ROM
4. click on the right (over the list of packages)
5. write ndiswrapper and mark for installation
ndisgtk, ndiswrapper-common, ndiswrapper-utils
6. apply button
7. exit the synaptic p. m.> go back to System>Adminstration>Windows Driver (you should see it at the bottom) it will allow you to install a new driver, be sure to have the driver... :)

There should be an icon on the panel by the Date(ON IT'S LEFT), click it and it will show you if there is any available network

It could help if you post more information about your wireless card (model, chipset, usb or pci etc.)
