[ubuntu] Disable Wireless Card

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hey, Just installed Ubuntu 10.4 and unfortunately it installed the driver for the very poor, built in wireless card that came with the pc. On 9.10 I used a wireless usb dongle to connect to the network which worked great. The built in wireless card is getting preference however and it keeps dropping the connection and I cant even open a webpage. Is there some way i can just disable the wireless card and stick to the usb connection? Thanks, (HowTos)
