    Are you sure this machine has a wireless device? If you have it installed, I need the out of the lshw command please.
    Code:
    sudo lshw -c network

    Solved re: Need wlan driver

    To MikeTbob and all. Boy am I red faced.
    Hardware and such I relied on someone else. I ran sudo lshw -c network and
    PCI (Sysfs) and nothing. Then dug up system details and no mention of wlan card and I was informed they were using a USB Ethernet adapter.
    Again sorry for the trouble.
