My ubantu machine is not detecting Wifi device of laptop emachines
Hello every one i have an e-machines brand laptop on which i have installed ubantu OS but the problem is that my Ubantu machine is not detecting the wifi device due to which i am unable to connect my laptop wirelessly to any network. but my WIFI device is working fine when i use microsoft windows xp and internet is working fine while using WIFI. what are the possible issues could be that ubantu is creating problem..

Thanks and regards,

The name is Ubuntu, not Ubantu.

First, it makes a huge difference which version of Ubuntu you are using. Please include that information when you are asking a question.

I got my wifi NIC to work in Kubuntu 8.04 by adding wifi applications. Open the Adept Package Manager and search for 'wifi'. Install the applications that are listed.

I had an easier time on a different machine by installing PCLinuxOS 2009. I still had to install wifi applications after the initial setup but it just seemed easier.

Thank you, Wabbalee! Your process resolved my very frustrating problem connecting wirelessly with my Gateway Laptop.
