I have just installed Ubuntu on a Dell Inspiron 1520 that came pre installed with Windows Vista and i currently run both of the OS (I just choose when the computer starts up).
The wifi definitely works on the computer since i used it to download Ubuntu in the first place when I was using Vista. The Network Manager says that I only have a 'Wired' Network and it doesn't have any other options to choose from.
I connected the Laptop into a wired connection and downloaded the
Wicd Network Manager but it had no effect either. From there I continued to go into
Software Sources and installed the wireless drive but that had no effect either. So... What can I do?
