View Full Version : [ubuntu] wireless on toshiba A200 satellite a no go

Hi all,

Computer literate but new to Ubuntu 8.04.1 and a bit overwhelmed, hope some of the old hands may offer guidance or a lead to persue.

Laptop is dual boot, Vista original installed, Toshiba satellite A200. wired connection works out of box, wireless does not. Wireless card is Intel Pro Wireless 4965 AG. Have followed troubleshooting on site as best i can, and am going through some of the linux manuals online now, but this has me stumped after 4 days trying.

result of lshw -C network are:

david@davidmobiledaca:~$ lshw -C network

from this can i assume that Ubuntu recognized presence of the wireless card....now what next?

btw have tried to use windows driver via ndiswrapper which indicated installed driver but nothing beyond that. then i realized from reading a native driver should work..

also, in system/administration/network...only my wired connection is shown..no indication that the wireless is there at all.

any leads i can persue, have already searched and attempted via the forums here without result..?

appreciated all.
