    Connecting to Netgear on Ubuntu Netbook Remix 9.10


    Hi. I've just installed Ubuntu Netbook Remix 9.10 on my new netbook and I'm trying to get it to connect to my Netgear DG834G router (PCI card or built-in, I'm not sure how to check). I'm dual booting Windows XP and that connects flawlessly. I also have a computer running Xubuntu 9.10 and that connected without any kind of configuration. At the moment I'm connected directly using an ethernet cable.

    Here's the output of the script from the "Start Here" thread:

    Your router is OK. This has to do with your build in wireless adapter:

    I can't find a driver loaded in your lsmod. AFAIK there should be a staging driver in your kernel version.
    Hope this information helps.

    Hi, thanks for replying. I'm afraid that doesn't help much. I know very little about linux so I don't know how I would access the staging driver in my kernel. Could you give me slightly more specific advice please?
