Hello,

I am having a strange problem. I have volunteered to put Ubuntu on seven older Dell Latitude 520 laptops at a center. Everything works except wireless.

The proprietary locked files icons give me two choices. Using the second choice I had one of the laptops wireless cards working until the install.

I know Dell's are finicky, but I am not even sure if the drivers are correct or the drivers are possible suggestions.

I will check old posts on how to check to find out how to know if the driver is correct.

My question is if it is not, how can I collect the files from my laptop, put them on cd, and install them on the older Dells?

I do not have permission to take one of the laptops home - which would make the process a lot simpler. Tia.
