    Help with wireless networking and resolution.

    Hey everyone. I just recently installed Linux (Ubuntu) again after maybe 2yrs or so. When I used Linux before, I was connecting via Cat5. Now, I'm using a wireless home network and I'm having some problems detecting the router.

    I am using Ubuntu 8.04 on my HP Laptop. The laptop is standard with HP's WiFi 802.11 etc. etc. What are the steps that I need to do in order to get my laptop connected to the internet via wireless connection?

    Also, I can't remember the files that you edit to add in new resolution and I forget where those files are located. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    It's an Atheros Comm. card. A friend of mine says that it's well supported so I should be able to find information on it. No luck as of yet.

    Not sure.

    When I do a iwconfig or ifconfig, it does not show my ath0 setting. Any ideas what is causing this? The internet works fine with Ethernet, now. Any suggestions?

    well it looks like Atheros cards arent officially supported in Ubuntu https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wi...CardsSupported
    But if you can find the model of the card then it might work with ndiswrapper
