Hello Linux Community,
I recently installed Ubuntu 9.10 on an old family laptop. It is a Compaq Presario V2000. Everything works perfectly except no wireless networks are recognized, even though I know there are available networks. My network controller is detected but is not doing it's job, which is finding available wireless networks! Using "system testing" I found this out about my network controller:
"Detecting your network controller(s):
Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL-8139/8139C/8139C+ (rev 10)
Broadcom Corporation BCM4318 [AirForce One 54g] 802.11g Wireless LAN Controller (rev 02)"
I know there are similar posts as mine, but I searched and none use the same netork controller.
Please Linux Community, help me out.
P.S. I have already tried the below steps, with no success. Any other way?
