    applications-->accessories-->terminal or you can press alt+F2 and type gnome-terminal. Anyway the terminal will open, type these commands, copy the output and paste it here.

    It looks like your wireless is the AR5006EG.

    I was helping another poster with the same wireless, take a look at that thread and see if it will help you some.

    Ubuntu and Fedora are both Linux, NDISwrapper doesn't care. I dont use wireless on Ubuntu anymore. I once did, and used NDISwrapper. I installed it from an Ubuntu repository instead of installing from source

    The repositories that I speak of are part of the normal Ubuntu update system. You should be able to install applications from them by using the Synaptic Package Manager that is a part of Ubuntu. You may need to first install it, or edit the menus to show it if it is already installed. Try entering synaptic in a terminal to see if it starts up.
