Ndiswrapper Ubuntu how-to would be a good place to start..

Also knowing what hardware you are trying to configure would help.

the output of the two following commands should tell us what Ethernet (wired) and Wireless card you have.



the .sys and .inf files are part of the windows drivers for your wireless card, that should have come with your laptop..

i finally found out what to do, it is called pppoeconf which is supposedly used to set up my modems and stuff, the question is keep getting this strange error message every time i run it

sorry, I scanned 2 interfaces, but the Access │
│ Concentrator of your provider did not respond. Please │
│ check your network and modem cables. Another reason │
│ for the scan failure may also be another running pppoe │
│ process which controls the modem.

what am i supposed to do, at this case.

sorry for being so erratic in my posting and replying but every time i post
and get a reply, i have to log off wind@ws and then swicth back to ubuntu to impliment your suggestions. kinda gets tiring after awhile.
