    Re: 10.04 Wireless 1201N

    yes, i am in the same boat. i am a complete n00b to ubuntu (ive used it before, but never installed it). i used wubi to install it. i used this guide...

    http://vip.asus.com/forum/view.aspx?id=20100103170804750&board_id=20&model=E ee+PC+1201N&SLanguage=en-us&page=3

    ... but i had trouble at the line...

    $sudo apt-get install build-essential

    ...and got an error...

    E: Couldn't find the package build-essential.

    I don't know what the problem is. Could it be that I'm using wubi? (sorry if that sounds stupid)

    Re: 10.04 Wireless 1201N

    I too am having issues with my 1201n.

    I believe it has to do with a driver incompatibility with the Atheros AR8132 card. I'm currently trying to research options for us. But I'm hoping someone here has figured it out.

    I did compile from source the driver when I was running 9.10, but have since started a brand new install of 10.04. I was hoping that the fix made it in.

    The weirdest part is that I can see some networks, but not mine. I also have a work network that doesn't broadcast it's SSID, and I can't connect to that either.

    For those who need this information, here is my lspci followed by my lsmod.

    Re: 10.04 Wireless 1201N - Atheros AR8132

    Just posting to change the topic name to reflect the driver issue we are having. That way passers by may notice our plight. This card is in other laptops too, not just 1201n's so we may get a few more people this way.

    Re: 10.04 Wireless 1201N

    Ok folks, I think I figured it out.

    Looks like the atheros cards were affected by a bug in some kernel code. The fix is in the next kernel release. You can either wait for the kernel to be released, or turn on the lucid-proposed repo and get it a little early (note this is unsupported so if stuff breaks you're on your own).

    Here's how to get the proposed kernel updates.

    Go to System -> Administration -> Software Sources.



    Then click on the Updates Tab. Select the Pre-released Updates (lucid-proposed) checkbox.



    Hit close. It will ask you to reload your sources. Hit Reload. After that, you will need to upgrade your machine. You can do so by going to System -> Administration -> Update Manager and updating your system like normal.


    Please note: I had to turn off my Compiz after this update. It could have been something I did, or it could have been the update. Just a warning.

    Re: 10.04 Wireless 1201N

    This is how I did it.
    Download the driver from Realtek
    http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/...Downloads=true
    It's the second download under RTL8191SE-VA2
    Extract the folder than open terminal
    $cd /directory/of/extract "cd Downloads" for me
    $cd rtl8192se_linux_2.6.0013.1204.2009
    $sudo su
    #make
    #make install
    #reboot

    as far as build-essential that is already included in ubuntu
    this method has worked for me since 9.10 on my 1201N
    without having access to the internet
    (i downloaded the driver from another computer and placed it on a flash driver and copied it to my 1201N)

    I have tried this method. But it didn't work.

    Yes, it does work with 9.10. But not for 10.04.

    I really don't understand why it isn't working for you.

    I've had my 1201N for a couple of months and I was running 9.10 and then ran 10.04RC and now I'm on 10.04 Desktop 32bit

    Eachtime I did a FRESH Install
    and each time I just installed the Realtek Driver and viola it worked!

    The only thing I noticed is in 9.10 Ubuntu detected my wifi card wrong and it didn't work at all but im 10.04 it detected it correctly and I can See a few networks but not all of them but I couldn't connect
