    Wireless not working in Ubuntu 9.04 on Laptop

    Hey guys, my problem i am facing is i am not able to browse on mozilla wirelessly, ubuntu AUTOMATICALLY detected the DRIVER and also ESTABLISHED CONNECTION, but when i attempted to browse the web, pages would not load.

    i can confirm that my wireless connection is working properly. i also tried downloading ndiswrapper and installing a new driver (blacklisting the old one) but still was not able to connect. (Local Area Network Connection works properly, ethernet auto establishes connection).

    Laptops Details
    Manufacturer- Toshiba
    Model- Satellite a205-s5804
    OS- Ubuntu 9.04

    Have you tried editing /etc/networking/nm-system-settings.conf?
    edit that to say
    managed=true instead of false.

    here is an overview of how i set my wireless up:
    1. sudo apt-get install ndiswrapper-common
    2. sudo ndiswrapper -i driver.inf
    3. lspci -nn (note down the device id)
    4. sudo ndiswrapper -a ####:#### driver
    5. sudo ndiswrapper -m
    6. sudo gedit /etc/NetworkManager/nm-system-settings.conf (change managed to true)
    7. sudo depmod -a
    8. sudo modprobe ndiswrapper
    9. sudo ifup wlan0

    Installing and loading NDISwrapper, without knowing anything about the wireless card and the native Linux drivers for it, is a sure way to really screw things up! I highly recommend you NOT do this, until you are sure that there is no Linux driver for it.
