http://www.linuxquestions.org – Hello, I am in way over my head trying to troubleshoot my linux wireless connection. I recently installed Ubuntu on my Averatec 3200 laptop and have been trying to follow the step-by-step driver installation solutions on the ubuntu website. I installed Wicd, and have been trying to update my wireless driver. 00:00.0 Host bridge: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT8378 [KM400/A] Chipset Host Bridge 00:01.0 PCI bridge: VIA Technologies, Inc.

But I have no idea how to actually install it and what comes after. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. (HowTos)
