Hey everyone,

Just installed Ubuntu 8.04 desktop on a Toshiba laptop as I'm trying to get away from Windows Vista; everything works great except I can't connect to my wireless network.

I've tried "sudo iwlist scan" and get the following: unable to resolve orozcovision.com.

If I'm hardwired, then I can connect to my router and I get internet. My internal wireless card is a Realtek-> if I check System->Administration->Hardware Drivers->: I get nothing...

Any help getting wireless is greatly appreciated!!!

Have also tried "sudo lshw -C network" and get the same thing - unable to resolve orozcovision.com

Please help me escape from Microsoft!!!
