http://ubuntuforums.org – Hello! I am brand new to ubuntu (I installed it about 2 hours ago on my new PC). Everything so far has seemed really easy and straight-forward, but I am having problems trying to connect to my wireless network. I have a Realtek 8185 wireless card, and have the disk with the inf file on it. I installed ndisgtk but when I pointed it to the inf file, I got an "error while installing" message, then it showed up in the list of currently installed drivers in ndisgtk but as an invalid driver. I'm not really sure what I'm doing wrong. Googling and searching on the forum has made me even more confused. I actually have another wireless card in my old PC (a belkin of some sort) - would I be better off using that? I'm using an ethernet cable at the moment and it works absolutely fine, I just plugged it in and off I went. Any help or tips would be much appreciated!! (HowTos)
