View Full Version : [ubuntu] Wireless network interface

April 28th, 2008, 01:45 AM
I have just installed Ubuntu 8.04. I am completely new....

I would like to know how I can get a GUI to display what wireless networks are available?

I have used the command

lshw -C network

and it has said my wireless has a driver iwl3945 (Intel wireless 3945ABG) and it is listed as wmaster0

so i would suspect it is installed and setup correctly?

you would normally see it on the right hand top corner.. click on the internet icon(similar to windows).. a drop down menu would appear listing your networks

i found it,

it displays a radio box next to wired network then under that it says wireless networks (which you cannot click)

under that it says connect to other wireless network

under that it says create new wireless network

but does not give me option to list the wireless networks?

I have the same Intel wireless card. I believe the driver is broken in Hardy 8.04. I have the same problem where wireless networks are not listed.
