hi i had windows 8 and it crashed, so i decided that i would install Ubuntu to replace it. i installed 12.10 and my wireless card (for wifi and wimax) will not connect to any network. my computer us an asus u56-e with a Intel centrino wireless-n 6150 wifi wimax card.
This is the first time I have ever had issues with Ubuntu whether it be picking up drivers from the get go or running fixes. There are two, to me crucial drivers not working. External Audio and Wireless. Ubuntu Studio 10.10 (Maverick)
I have a Dell e6520. Wireless is a 2056 WiMax. Don't care about the WiMax capability only normal wi-fi.
The mobile WiMAX base station supplied by Huawei for the vividwireless networks has become one of the first WiMAX products to receive the WiMAX Forum seal of approval for operation with multiple antennas (MIMO) in the 2.3GHz band.
Huawei says the mobile WiMAX network it supplied to Perth based vividwireless is the world's first to use four transmit and receive antennas and beamforming and is able to deliver bandwidths of 36Mbps downstream and 4Mbps upstream 3kms from the base station.
