    New Linux user - wifi woes

    Hi Folks,

    I live in Herefordshire and am experimenting with Ubuntu....

    I'm totally new to Linux and have managed to setup Ubuntu as a dual boot on my new Toshiba Equium A300D laptop.

    Unfortunately, Ubuntu doesn't appear to have native support for my Realtek 8187B wi-fi device.

    I've searched around on the net about how to get it to work, but frankly I don't understand the solutions what with being totally new to Linux.

    Would some kind soul be able to guide me step-by-step noddy guide style to get my laptop running Ubuntu on wireless, please ?

    I have installed Ubuntu as I want to learn how to use Linux, but I was hoping that when running it I'd be able to refer to T'internet for reference and support.

    Any help would be greatl appreciated.

    Cheers

    Jedi_Meijin

    Here are some links to the WiFi sections of Help:

    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/WiFiHowTo
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wi...roubleshooting

    Also I found this useful when I started:
    https://help.ubuntu.com/8.04/switching/index.html

    If you don't solve it here, you could post in the Absolute Beginners section, where more people will see your post.

    Good luck!
