Toshiba Satellite A505D-S6958
AMD Turion-X2 64
Realtek RTL8192E wireless

I could really, really use some assistance with getting this to work under Ubuntu 9.10. I was provided with Linux drivers from one of the folks here, for which I again say many thanks!
I ran the make, make install per instructions, with no errors. Rebooted with no errors.
Wired connection works great, as has always been.
Wireless is dead as a door nail!!
The wireless is seen as WLAN1 when running the iwconfig
lo no wireless extensions.

eth0 no wireless extensions.

I am a Linux novice, pretty much at my limit with what else to do, look at...
I would greatly appreciate assistance from someone more experienced!
