I am a newbie with linux OS and i have installed UBUNTU 8.1 on my HP pavillion 1106 ax laptop. I am not able to connect to the internet due some network issue.
The network adapter is Atheros AR5007.
Kindly can anyone give a step by step procedure to enable the same?

    I think we need the wireless adapter's drivers to make it work in Ubuntu. The same thing happened to me when upgrading from Vista to XP. My computer was built around Vista, and I had to search the net for hours finding all of the drivers to make XP work.

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.

Connecting an adapter to laptop running linux


Yes/No. Dlink has no support for Linux. Ubuntu should install generic drivers but it may work or just epic fail.

Driver


First off thanks for choosing fixya.com.

Not all devices are supported under linux. Especially when it comes to wireless devices. I have searched several suse forums and have not yet found anyone who has gotten the 8313 to work. Your best bet if using linux and needing wifi connectivity is to use either a prism chipset device or atheros chipset device. Netgear makes several devices that work under linux.

To make sure the device really is not working try going to a console and type as root "iwconfig -a"
if nothing shows your device is for sure not installed.

Hope this helps.

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.
