rtl8180 ubuntu feisty fawn


i just got my laptop working and i decided to upgrade to feisty fawn ubuntu. the previous ubuntu install i had detected my wireless right away... i see the kernel has headers for rtl818x but doesn't detect my card...

i'd like to just get my old setup back (not using ndiswrapper) because the tools were fantastic. it made it real easy to switch back and forth between different networks. how can i go about doing this with feisty fawn.

ma521 ? Realtek(rtl8180) RealtekDrivers


is listed as supported at http://doc.gwos.org/index.php/NetgearWireless

the power light is on, i guess i just need the programs to get it working... ifconfig wlan0 up doesn't work, can't scan for networks using iwlist wlan0 scan either

Have you tried system > administration > network ?

To provide information about your wireless stuff, try: iwconfig (show the output).

If you really want to know why you haven't got any replies... see the long advise in my sig.
