No wifi and ethernet connectivity on ubuntu 9.10


Hi all,
I have a Toshiba Satellite L55 S5105 Laptop with "Atheros AR8152 PCI-E fast ethernet controller"
and "Realtek RT8188CE Wireless LAN 802.11n PCI-E "

I have ubuntu9.10 running on this[dual boot].
For some reason there is no wifi and ethernet connectivity.

Are the drivers not installed? where and how do I start to troubleshoot this problem.

please help.

al.

I did want to post the ouput for the command "lspci -v".

Here is are my issues:
1. I just have one laptop with no internet connectivity in ubuntu, every time I want to logon to linuxquestions.org I have to boot from windows to get to the internet. So i cannot copy and paste the output via ubuntu.
2. Opening a simple text file saved in linux[Containing the command's output] from windows does not help. It looks corrupt in windows.
3. Any suggestion, as to how I can execute commands in ubuntu,save the copy in a flash drive, read them in windows and paste it to linuxquestions.org ?

Thanks,

Al.

Hello,

you may save the textfile on the Windowspartition.

And please post also the output of
Code:
lsmod | sort
as well.

You would use a flash drive that has a windows compatible formatted filesystem, so format the drive from windows or in Linux if you know how to do that. Then boot into Linux, and run the commands and copy and paste into a text file. Then save the text file to the drive as a lspci.txt file. Then safely remove the flash drive and reboot to windows and open the file and copy and paste to the Linuxquestions thread.

Now in Linux, you can see what devices you have with:

Code:
# ifconfig -a
Then try to bring up the ethernet with

Code:
# ifup eth0
Then see if it is up

Code:
# ifconfig -a
You can also go through the network manager and configure your ethernet device and other network devices. Then there will be a script on boot up to start them. You can write these scripts manually if you know how to do that. You can also configure the ethernet device manually. Search Linuxquestions for how to do that.
