Compaq Presario v6000 with ubuntu 10.04 does not recognize wireless network


Hi,

I have a compaq presario v6000 laptop. I have installed ubuntu 10.04 on it. The wired network works fine but it does not recognize the wireless connection. Following are results of few commands which can be useful:

iwconfig :
lo no wireless extensions.

eth0 no wireless extensions.

pan0 no wireless extensions.

ifconfig:

I see an Ethernet controllor here: 00:14.0 Bridge: nVidia Corporation MCP51 Ethernet Controller (rev a3) but I don't see any wifi adapter.
What makes you think you have one?

This looks like it. You'll have to see if it is supported and if you need special drivers/firmware for it. You have some googling to do.
