    Need help with Advent 7105 wireless connection

    I'm new to Linux and have just installed Ubuntu 8.04 on my Advent 7105 laptop but cannot get the wireless to work. I have tried following various threads on installing a driver for this card but I am at a loss as to how I should download and install a driver for it. The computer has a hotkey for the wlan but this does not work with Ubuntu. I really need a clear and simple explanation (for a complete novice) on how this is done.

    The card is a Marvel Technolgy Group Limited 88w8335[Libertas] 802.11b/g wireless (rev 43).

    Grateful for any help!

    I didn't see anything current on this issue, but there was a thread from last year:

    Hope this points you in the right direction.

    I'm not sure if your laptop is the same, but I've recently managed to get Xubuntu working with my Advent 7040 laptop. The problem I had was that when I pressed the WiFi button, it didn't activate the Wifi.

    I have installed Xubuntu 8.04 on a partition with XP on the other partition.

    Then I went into the Bios and set the WiFi activation to maintain is't condition that it was last switched off in.

    Then re-start in Ubuntu, and your WiFi will be active.

    I'm sure other people have cracked this before, but I couldn't find another post and was quite proud of myself as a complete newcommer to the world of non-Microsoft computing!

    Hope it helps...

    I forgot to mention that After changing the bios, I started up in XP, turned on the WiFi then restarted in Xubuntu.

    it's been a long night

    Yeah we could get it to work that way but I have removed XP totally and now it doesn't work at all. I press the button and it doesn't activate my wireless. So i need to get some sort of linux friendly driver for the wireless card.
