I'm on 12.04 and up to date. I installed a cheap no name (says EDUP, on the Antenna is the the D-Link logo) WI-FI card. It says it's got a
I'm connected via cable right now. The proprietary drivers detection didn't find anything. I tried with this Ubuntu guide.
lspci | grep Network doesn't come up with anything. Then took a look at this other guide. The output of the command
sudo lshw -C network is the following:

Don't know how to go on from here.
edit: Found this thread Mine is a different card though
IEEE802.11b/g is the model.
EDIT: I installed XP and it actually recognized a Broadcom chip. I then installed Lubuntu and this is the output of
lspci | grep Network:
01:08.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4318 [AirForce One 54g] 802.11g Wireless LAN Controller (rev 02) I ran
sudo apt-get install firmware-b43-installer as sugested here: http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drivers/b43/#Ubuntu.2FDebian And it worked. I could connect to my network after a reboot. I then detached the ethernet cable. After a reboot it said "waiting to configure network manager", then "waiting another 60 seconds to configure network manager". Nothing happened. After logging in and clicking on the network manager icon it says: "network manager doesn't run at this time".
sudo NetworkManager start did it. Working now. Upon rebooting it says the same thing again.
EDIT: Managed to solve the probleme with the info provided here (see Unmanaged Wired Network)
