I now do have the newest Ubuntu installed in virtualbox - and have to bring to attention, that the module as well as the needed firmware for that card is already present - with no online-connection so far. Just the plain CD install.
should tell you that the module is loaded
if it is not, then
will do that
- all commands with "sudo" in front when needed -
after you plug in the adapter, you should see something in the system logs.
To check, use one of these commands:
The documentation is old and it mentioned that network-manager needs to be disabled.
No relatively recent info on that that I could find.
So I suppose it is "just working"(TM) now.
What do you get from all these commands?
What happens if you right-click the network-manager icon?
And please tell what version of Ubuntu you are on.
From what I can see, it should just work - given that the network settings are correct (you need to fill them in - it will not ask you automatically as in windows).
