Go to the Ubuntu forum, here you should be able to find codes to set up the Wi-Fi properly, as a linux user you wiil be aware that you will have to use source code to to get the wireless up and running and is not as simple as windows .exe files

good luck


kind regards

Download drivers under Ubuntu for HP ENV 4500 e-All-in-One Series?


Hi Frank,

HP is one of the most supported printers for Linux. I run Mint (based on Ubuntu) & have had support for even older models for years now. Have you tried installing it w/o bothering w/drivers at all? Basically, you turn on the printer, open the printers dialog>add new>then click network printer (assuming you're using the wi-fi on the printer). In Mint, I usually wait 1-2 mins. & it comes up with the printer listed by IP automatically. Now, I'm speaking of Mint- not 100% sure on Ubuntu but it ought to be very similar...

If that somehow doesn't work, then go here & follow the excellent walkthrough:

http://hplipopensource.com/hplip-web/install/install/index.html

Please report back if it solves it for you.

Cheers from Australia!

Hi i am using ubuntu linux i need install netgear usb adapter wg111v3 how can i install in ubuntu please help me


NETGEAR does not offer any offcial drivers for the adapter to work on Ubuntu as they dont support Linux OS. However, you may try third party drivers to install the adapter on Ubuntu. Try the below link:

Hope this helps.

Wireless Card not working in Ubuntu 9


I had the same problem on my Acer Aspire 5920G, I have Intel wi-fi tho. Kernel update fixed it, but be careful when updating kernels. The network part of it can be updated separately. Check ubuntu forums about how to update kernel.

Wi-Fi drivers for Acer Aspire 4710Z for linux


The drivers for Windows can be used if no specific Linux drivers exist. There's a program within Linux called NDisWrapper which is designed to use the drivers provided for Windows XP in Linux. Refer to your particular distribution of Linux for the details on how to set up NDisWrapper from within your distribution (I've only done it in Ubuntu so have no experience of other distros)

Ubuntu 7.04 linux-install on Dell Laptop C610 doesn't see adapter!


Ubuntu is up to 8.04. They made a lot of improvements to the network interface. You should upgrade. Go to "system-administration-software sources-" click on the updates tab and then select normal updates under release upgrade in the updates tab. Ubuntu will then tell you that you have updates. State the update manager and click on the option to upgrade to the next version up. If you aren't sure how to do this write me back and I will help you.
