Completely new to Ubuntu and the whole Linux scene, so go easy on me! Just installed Ubuntu 10.04 on my Eee PC 901 after getting progressively frustrated by the boxed OS, pleasantly surprised by how much faster and more efficient Ubuntu is (Using the full desktop version not the netbook remix)
Just as I started getting to work with it however, it disconnected my wireless network after about 5 minutes of connection and now refuses to connect to it, despite the fact it can see it and many others. I've determined, after much clueless searching, that I have a Ralinktech RT2860 wireless card in my machine, something that apparently has a lot of trouble with Ubuntu. I've searched many forums and websites since, looking for a solution, and all so far have been complete dead ends, with either too complex language so I don't know whether its a solution or not, or just disappearing into un-answered obscurity. I could really do with some help with this from a beginners standpoint, if someone could explain to me a solution it would be much appreciated, at my wits end!
