view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi, I am new to Ubuntu, and heres what I have. I have a IBM thinkpad that I replaced the hard drive in. I installed ubuntu, thats all thats on there, (no windows). My machine does not have an internal wireless card, so I have a USB external antenna type wireless conection. I tried to load the driver,on cd,it didnt seem to load. When I turn on the laptop, the external antenna does blink, but I still cannot get online wirelessly. I did plug in ethernet cable, and was able to connect. How do I get my wireless to work?? Thanks alot. (HowTos)
