[ubuntu] Wireless driver issues

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi there guys, I'm a newly converted Linux user and am finding the experience brilliant so far, apart from not being able to use wireless on my Linux machine. So the lowdown is, I had a spare laptop lying around at home, a HP 6715b, and decided to install the Ubuntu 9.10 Beta on it. I have managed to get it to recognize the wireless adapter, but the drivers included with the OS don't work. I have trawled countless forums and found a fair amount of coverage on this issue with a multitude of solutions, but none of them seem to work for me. Could be a beta issue, but I am more inclined to believe it's user error, as I'm fairly new to Linux. I am getting accustomed to using Terminal, it's surprisingly logical and straight forward, I'm starting to see just how limited the Windows command line really is, but I'm still learning. Anyway, any help at all would be very much appreciated! Cheers! (Hardware)
