View Full Version : [ubuntu] How to get Ubuntu to connect with my wireless network

February 24th, 2010, 01:49 AM
I posted a topic like this before, but I didn't get anything that was able to work on my computer, so I uninstalled Ubuntu, and just today reinstalled it inside of Windows 7. I have been trying to connect, getting help from this https://help.ubuntu.com/7.04/internet/C/connect-to-internet.html guide. But nothing seems to work. I have a cradlepoint wireless router, and a Sprint Air card. My computer is a Toshiba Satellite L505 laptop. How can I make Ubuntu recognize my wireless card, so that I can go onto the internet with it?

So I could try to be specific as possible, I looked up in my computer what Wireless card it has. I'm not sure if I came up with the right thing, but under Network Adapters, I got Microsoft Virtual Wifi Miniport Adapter, Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller, and Realtek RTL8191SE Wireless LAN 802.11n PCI-E NIC.

I would really appreciate it if anyone could help me figure out how to get my computer online. Thank you in advance.

Please post the output of these commands:

lshw -C network

I had to scan this in, because I can only use the internet with Windows 7 on my computer.

Sorry for the delay, but been out of the loop. I don't see your 802.11N at all. Is it built in? Is it a cardslot or USB?
