View Full Version : [ubuntu] installing wireless driver

January 8th, 2011, 09:38 PM
Sorry if this has been covered in other threads, but I am brand new to Ubuntu and havenít been able to decipher the other instructions.
I installed Ubuntu but canít get the wireless connected. I downloaded the ndisgtk package but it still didnít connect.

I went through the troubleshooting steps up to using the windows wireless drivers. I installed the ndisgtk package and it says it is already installed.

I tried to open the ndisgtk(system>administrator>windows wireless drivers and selected ďinstall new driverĒ but it says to choose the location of my Windows .inf file and click Install. But I canít find the location.

I tried to search for *.inf files through the search feature but couldnít find one.

How do I navigate to the *.inf file so that I can click OK.

I think I am close to solving this issue, but just canít figure out that step.

(using 10.04 on a Compaq Presario 2100)

Please help.

Think you may just need to turn on the driver. Look at your menu options.
