View Full Version : [ubuntu] first time with ubuntu

August 6th, 2008, 05:38 PM
I have a gigabyte wireless card in a dell dimension desktop system. I put ubuntu on it because my girlfriend went crazy over this OS. I don't know where to go to connect to wireless or to see if the driver works or not.

Please open up a terminal (Applications>Accessories menu), run these commands and post the output here:

lspci -nn
lshw -C Network
uname -m

so that we'll know what kind of wireless card you have and can find instructions on how to make it work on Ubuntu.
