http://ubuntuforums.org – Hello, I'm trying to get an older Compaq laptop up and running with 12.04. I can't get the wireless card to work. I've tried several things in this post: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1748245&page=5 including post #44 without success. Most of the time, wireless networking doesn't even show up in the Networking menu up near the clock. Also read some of post http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1604868 I'm starting to worrry that I damaged the wireless card or the bios during the install of Ubuntu because the install cd hung when I tried to turn on the wifi switch.
