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.

Can I override the bios at startup so that it will recognize a new hard drive - for linux?


There should be no need to play around with your bios settings. Linux will install on a brand new hard drive as the sole operating system, or on an existing hard drive alongside Windows without any problem.

If you haven't already got a Linux distro, have a look at
http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop

Download whichever version of Ubuntu you prefer (LTS- the long term support version is recommended).

When the .iso file containing the operating system had downloaded, burn it onto a dvd, or install it on a usb drive.

Insert the dvd into the drive and restart or switch off/switch on the computer. The dvd will then kick in and offer you the choice of trying Ubuntu without installing, or a full install.

If you're using a new, empty hard drive just follow the on screen instructions and Ubuntu will install as the sole operating system.

If you already have Windows on your hard drive Ubuntu will give you the choice of either erasing Windows or installing Ubuntu alongside Windows. It's your choice.

Installing Ubuntu alongside Windows creates a dual boot hard drive. At start up you just choose which OS to use - Windows or Ubuntu. If creating this dual-boot system Ubuntu puts a (Linux) boot loader into the Windows OS so that Linux is recognised.

If you save the Ubuntu file to a usb drive you then have to change the bios settings so that your computer uses USB as the first boot device. Then restart your computer so that it boots in from your usb .. and Ubuntu will begin installing.

Whichever you use - dvd or usb - during the installation process Ubuntu will ask you how many GB of hard drive space it should use? You do not need to physically partition the hard drive. Linux will do it for you.

If it's a desktop PC you are using with Windows on the first hard drive and are fitting a second hard drive to install Linux on, or have installed Linux on the second hard drive .. and find that Linux doesn't appear at start up, it's because there's no Linux boot loader in Windows.

I quit using Windows many years ago.

I have an old HP Laptop (6910P) and tried installing Ubuntu from a USB (w ISO image) but the install is not working.


I did that too and the way I got it in was to burn the usb to a disc , then run the disc . the installer wizard took over and I had both win 7 and ubantu on the pc

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!

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.

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.

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.

USB mouse won't work under XP in a dual boot Ubuntu GRUB 1.5


It has the latest mouse driver (logitech setpoint 4.0). Before installing Ubuntu the setup worked w/ SUSE/XP using GRUB dual boot. After installing Ubuntu XP does not see the usb mouse. Even Logitech setpoint does not have the mouse setup/configuration option. It appears that at boot it does not recognize the mouse or disables it. The BIOS has the usb keyboard and mouse enabled. Currently, I have two mices one for xp and either mouse will work under Ubuntu.
