Please Help! Ubuntu/How to Configure Wireless card??!
Hey everyone, I've tried everything that a beginner can do. I just cant figure this out. I kinda want to give up and just delete linux. I FINALLY got ubuntu working on my laptop after a ton of research. But now I just CANNOT get my wireless card to work. I downloaded ndiswrapper common, utils, and ndisgtk and set up my .inf file with my wireless card, but then when I click "configure wireless card" It says there is NO configuration utility found or something like that. I dont know what to do now. I've read through alot of documentation and I looked up on ubuntus website and it says to go to:
1. Open the Networking Admin tool (System | Administration | Networking), select the Wireless connection and click Properties, ensure the Enable roaming mode checkbox is ticked.
but i dont have that!!! why not? how do i finish configuring my card? how do i search for networks in and around my house and school?
Someone please give me some dumbed down answers. thanks alot!
