View Full Version : [ubuntu] installation from windows using network

June 24th, 2008, 12:59 AM
Hi there,

I am trying to install Ubuntu from Windows using Network.

After successfully following all the guidelines given under the heading "netboot approach" here:


After rebooting - I chose "Install Ubuntu" - After Installing keyboard layout, it detected my "network interface" card - I chose the wireless card

Intel(R) PRO/Wireless LAN 2100B Mini PCI Adapter

After that it started checking for any available wireless network, but it **failed!**

What should I do now? I tried with other distro "Debian" also but it gave me similar message "Your network is probably not using the DHCP protocol. Alternatively, the DHCP server may be slow or some network hardware is not working properly.

Can anyone solve this problem?

Thanks for any help!
