    Wifi Problems: Eeepc


    Ok, so i picked up the Eeepc, played with the Xandros install for a little while, and then replaced it with Ubuntu. I followed this guide:
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Ee...e4ec32ef23fba1
    but for some reason it does not recognize that I have a wireless card. I get the drivers to install fine, but it doesn't seem to be able to find my card at all.

    Here is the output for ifconfig:
    eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:1E:8C:7CC:CB inet addr:192.168.0.100 Bcast:192.168.0.255 Mask:255.255.255.0

    Like I said, the drivers install fine, but it just wont recognize my card for some reason.

    Help?

    It doesn't seem to show the wireless at all. The Attansic L2 is listed as an ethernet controller.

    Is it possible that it is an internal USB device?

    One other thing to check. Make sure that wlan is enabled in the BIOS.

    For your first point, thats actually what the problem was. I'm sorry if I didn't make that clearer. It was actually the BIOS though, which actually confuses me because I never went into the BIOS between installs, but wlan worked fine under Xandros, but not under Ubuntu till now.
