    Wireless networking not working in Ubuntu


    Hey just. I just recently installed Ubuntu on my computer so that I could dualboot it with my windows vista.

    However, I can't seem to find any wireless networks. By cable it works just fine.
    I am very new to ubuntu aswell, so I could use some help on how to get my wireless network working
    I am using a Zepto Laptop with an Atheros network card.

    Any help?

    Thanks,
    Best regards Fred

    Is your wireless network hardware identified, but just not showing any networks? You could try 'ifconfig (connection name) up' in the console and then see if it works. Also read https://help.ubuntu.com/8.04/interne...onnecting.html, it's some documentation about getting networks going in ubuntu.

    I responded to another thread about wireless networking in ubuntu at http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/ubu...tml#post608837 , maybe that will help you. Also, linux forums has its own section for wireless networking at http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/wireless-internet/.
