[ubuntu] Wireless problem on a Dell inspiron laptop

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi, I have a Dell inspiron laptop 1564 that i installed ubuntu 9.10 on. And for some reason the internet connection wont work either by a cable connection nor a wireless connection. Another thing is that when i inserted the live cd prior to installation, an icon appeared at the top panel saying that there are proprietary drivers that needs to be installed. But after the installation, there was no such icon. Please help as i am sick of windows and would like to use ubuntu as soon as possible. (Hardware)
