http://ubuntuforums.org – I just installed Ubuntu 9.10 x64 on a ThinkPad SL410 2874-32U and am not seeing any wireless functionality. All of the information I've seen on this machine mentions 802.11b/g/n, but never lists a brand or model of the wireless adapter. My skill level is such that I don't normally have difficulty setting up wireless in Ubuntu on a machine on which the Wi-Fi is directly supported, or supported with restricted drivers. If NDISwrapper or another manual approach is necessary, I hope to find step-by-step instructions for the particular machine. Alternately, has anyone had good luck with a particular ExpressCard/34 Wi-Fi adapter? Any help is very much appreciated. r.a.parks (Hardware)
