Hey everyone,

As the title said, I have a WLAN a+b+g mini-PCI Module. Edgy Eft fails to recognize it. However, I'm dual booting and it works very well in Windows. I know it is not being recognized because I don't have the icon in the top right hand screen showing all the wireless information (not to mention my 3 hours of troubleshooting )

I can access the internet via ethernet cable.

Any advice would be well appreciated! Thanks in advanced.

Tyler

P.S. I've searched the forums as to not repost, but I had no luck with my specific problem and I'm unsure if solutions to other peoples wireless can carry over to mine. Sorry if there's any trouble!

The place to really try is the Ubuntu forums as there is very few of us with in depth knowledge in that area, and some of us cant even manage that ourselves, edgys wireless support isnt actually as good as dappers for some reason, what drivers are you using?

You have to set it up with ndiswrapper... tutorial here:

And as Scott said, there aren't many Linux experts here, and most of us that do run Linux are learning as well. We will do our best to help you, but forums dedicated soley to Ubuntu might be a better bet :whistling:

Well you dont actually have to use Ndiswrapper you just need to find the linux drivers for that card its slightly more complicated as you need to find them but native Linux drivers have more features than ones used in ndiswrapper that will have alot of stuff disabled in order to work. Im sure that broadcom chip has a linux driver, the ubuntu forums have literally had hundreds of people with your problem they will have all the info you need.
