computer does not recognize wireless card WPC11 ver 4


Hello,

I am running ubuntu 8.04. I have a linksys wireless card WPC11 ver4 which the computer does not recognize. There is nothing wrong with the card as it works with windows XP. Is there a solution?


thank you

I am just new on ubuntu, I had a similar problem and ubuntu was not recognising my wireless card. I connected directly (wired) to the internet and run updates. It was fix after that. hope this help

Is the wireless card plugged in and turned on? It isn't be shown up, you see.

Find the wireless kill switch, then give us the output of
Code:
dmesg|tail

Was it plugged in when you did any of the other stuff? Like lspci? It seems to suggest an entry may be in there.
