    ToshSATELLITE A100 Wireless Setup?

    Am new to Ubuntu, obviously. Am trying to get this wireless running, according to most, it should work straight away, although I don't really know whether I need to grab some drivers or anything.

    Here's some stats

    Make. Toshiba Satellite A100

    Wireless. Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG.

    I went through the 'how to post a wireless problem thread guide,' but most of the commands seemed to result in nothing relevant in terminal, or, more likely, went over my head and I executed them wrong.

    Would really appreciate your help!

    run the following command in a terminal and post the output:

    Code:
    dmesg | grep iwl
    rfkill list
    if the list you get say hardblock yes then look for a wireless button on the laptop.
    and make sure it's turned on.

    Also, plug in an ethernet cable and make sure you have no drivers to install (run Additional Drivers). If there's anything wireless related, install it.
