Hi

I'm newbie who's installed ubuntu on my toshiba laptop. The wifi isn't working.

I went through this help
http://ph.ubuntuforums.com/showthread.php?t=766529&page=2
and nothing happened and I also installed WICD and uninstalled network-manager.

Any ideas what to do?

my spec is AR242x 802.11abg which I believe is a AR5007eg?!

Read through these posts and you might just find the answers you need. Also, did you enable the restricted repositories? It might help.

For basic info on Ubuntu and Linux, I've compiled a series of useful links. Just click on the "Look here" link in my signature below to access them if you require information.
