View Full Version : [ubuntu] Dell Wireless 1505 Draft, Tried NDISwrapper

November 19th, 2008, 07:37 PM
I am on a Dell inspiron 1525 with a Dell Wireless 1505 Draft 802.11n WLAN mini-card. I have followed all the steps to NDISwrapper and it has the correct driver.

For some reason, I am not picking up any wireless networks when my Windows partition catches at least 3. Why is this not working?

To make sure that your wireless device is working, could you paste the output of:

sudo lshw -C network

In your next post. The above command must be run in a Applications-->Accessories-->Terminal.
