View Full Version : [ubuntu] Wireless card

April 7th, 2011, 11:20 PM
I took a Linux+ class like 6 years ago, so much has changed and I forgot the commands in termial not to mention proper syntax. I have a problem with a Toshiba NB505's wifi, I'm not picking anything up. i have ndiswrapper installed and i haven't been able to find a driver that actually works much less how to install it, I tried downloading the one from Toshiba's site, but when i browse for it using the windows wireless drivers application I can't find the .inf file that is obviuously in the "MyDocuments" folder, I even extracted it. i'm running -i guess- the netbook version of ubuntu 10.10 i believe my onboard wifi card is a Realtek 8176. Please help!!!! I wanna learn how to use ubuntu to the point where I can do anything I could do on Win7 on Ubuntu, I love the OS and the GUI is pretty smooth.
