View Full Version : [ubuntu] Wireless network card not properly detected

November 15th, 2009, 06:27 PM
Hi there!

I just installed 64-bit ubuntu 9.10 on my desktop machine, and the wireless card isn't being detected properly... I've had a hunt on the interweb for useful commands and directions to go about fixing it, but have come up empty...

Currently there are no wireless networks shown in my network manager applet on my task bar.

The hardware itself is the netgear WG311v3.

An lspci -v shows:

06:01.0 Ethernet controller: Marvell Technology Group 88w8335 [Libertas] 802.11b/g Wireless (rev 03)
Subsystem: Netgear Device 6b00
Flags: bus master, 66mhz, medium devsel, latency 64, IRQ 15
Memory at fbff0000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=64k]
Memory at fbfe0000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=64k]
Capabilities: <access denied>

Now, i know this card works, because it was working in 64-bit Vista.

If anyone can offer any help on this it'd be very much appreciated!!
