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.

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:

Doesnt seem to recognize hardware

I had the same problem, but due to legal issues there won't be any linksys drivers available for linux any time soon. What i did was to sell mine and buy a different one with full compatibility with both windows and linux.

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

Hello there. You need to install the driver from

As a side note, Redhat AS is not really a great choice for beginners to linux, you may find Ubuntu or another new user orientated Distribution, makes a better attempt at hardware detection.

Hope this helps.

Wireless driver problem

I am currently using Linux on a Compaq C500 with a Broadcom wireless adapter. Sounds like your wireless adapter is on of the ones that uses the b43 module like mine.

Aside from using the correct module, you also need a firmware image. Instructions can be found at:

Hope this helps and good luck with Linux! Once you fully switch to Linux you'll never go back to crappy M$ products!

Wmp54gs and Linux Ubuntu 7.10

I don't see the GS on Ubuntu's hardware list at all. I see older version, and they said some work, and some don't.

Hardware compatibility is, and will most likely always be an issue with any Linux distro.

Good luck.
