http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi-- I am seeking the help of the linux experts here. I've been installing linux as a newbie on 4 computers. Sometimes Linux doesn't automatically get the wireless cards going right away. I seek answers on the forums and then they work -- even though I don't usually fully comprehend what commands I am putting in. Well that streak of luck has ended. I simply cannot get this wireless card working. It maybe a hardware issue. I have even reinstalled the kernel = 3.2.0-49-generic I am running Xubuntu Precise = Ubuntu 12.04.2 LTS \n \l I am working with a Toshiba Satellite P205D-S7802 lapt (Hardware)
