http://ubuntuforums.org – I just installed Ubuntu 9.10 and my wireless network adapter doesn't work. It worked using my previous installation (Knoppix 6.2), so I suspect it isn't the hardware. I have: * Tried to use ndiswrapper to install the Windows drivers * Built and installed the Linux drivers from the RALINK web site. Neither option worked (assuming I did them correctly, which I may not have). lsusb can see the wireless adapter: Bus 001 Device 002: 050d:825b Belkin Components lshw -C network has this to say: *-network description: Ethernet interface product: 82573V Gigabit Ethernet Controller (Copper) vendor: Intel Corporation physical id: 0 bus info: pci@0000:04:00.0 logical name: eth0 version: 03 serial: 00:13:20:7a:95:86 capacity: 1GB/s width: 32 bits clock: 33MHz capabilities: pm msi pciexpress bus_master cap_list ethernet physical tp 10bt 10bt-fd 100bt 100bt-fd 1000bt-fd autonegotiation configuration: autonegotiation=on broadcast=yes driver=e1000e driverversion=1.0.2-k2 firmware=1.0-5 latency=0 link=no multicast=yes port=twisted pair resources: irq:28 memory:4d100000-4d11ffff ioport:2000(size=32) *-network description: Network controller product: BCM43XG vendor: Broadcom Corporation physical id: 0 bus info: pci@0000:05:00.0 version: 01 width: 32 bits clock: 33MHz capabilities: bus_master configuration: driver=b43-pci-bridge latency=32 resources: irq:21 memory:4d014000-4d017fff Help, help!
