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

Ubuntu Linux Feisty 7.04 install works well on this laptop and all equipment recognized and described except the adapter. Even the USB 1.0 is seen but
"unclaimed". The 2wire functions fine in a WinXP install on the same laptop.
I suspect I need a  linux driver but need advice on:
1)Which driver
2)How to download
3)How to install
4)How to activate adapter.
My laptop is dual boot and I have the gateway address for my AT&T router.
A friend said something about an "Orinoco" driver but  who knows???
Thx in advance, John

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.

Am using in my laptop linux os, but its not showing wifi connection in my home,

Linux does not usually play nice with wireless routers, it can take up to four to five reboots to access the router. A trick that I usually do to connect to the router is to join an unlisted network, and use your router's name as the unidentified network name. That sometimes works for me.

I hope this helps!

How to activation camera in ubuntu os

UBUNTU is a linux open source OS. Chances are your camera doesnt have a Linux driver and wasnt designed to operate under Linux. The website the user support community for UBUNTU.. I would post your question there for assistance from someone with a similar model for your laptop. There is also a selection for real time chat support from other UBUNTU users. I have checked DELL website under your unit and it was made to run the Windows XP system so there are no Linux drivers available directly from Dell.

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:

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.

You may have a conflict with the hardware. I have had installations fail because of this. You may want to use the Ubuntu live CD to boot into Ubuntu. If this works out for you, you should be able to install.

If you cannot boot into Ubuntu using the live CD, try booting into the CD using some special boot prompts. See this How To:

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)
