Configuring Wireless on a Toshiba Portege R835
I am a linux newbie trying to get the wifi setup on my Toshiba Portege R835. It is running an Intel WiMAX/Wifi Link 6050 Series (rev 5f) wifi card, and I am running ubuntu 10.04.
From the ui under wireless networks it says "device not ready"
I tried running ifconfig and it only shows lo, but if I do ifconfig -a it shows me a wireless card listed under wlan0. I tried running
sudo ifconfig wlan0 up
But it gave me an error: SIOCSIFFLAGS: No such file or directory
I also looked in lib/firmware and do in fact have iwlwifi-6050-5.ucode listed in there. Unfortunately, I am really not sure how to attack the problem from here.
I should also mention that the wired connections also do not work, so anything I need to download has to be downloaded from a windows boot and burned to a CD to transfer (making the problem much more difficult to solve!)
Does anyone have any ideas?
Thanks in advance
