    Acer Aspire 5755-6699, Wired, but no Wireless


    I managed to install the wired drivers for my new laptop, but I'm unable to find any working wireless drivers. I'm not sure what the actual wireless card is, but here's my lspci if it'll help:

    Edit:

    I was able to fix it by doing this:

    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:glasen/intel-driver 
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    sudo apt-get install linux-image-generic-lts-backport-natty linux-headers-generic-lts-backport-natty
