I am a noob and I just installed ubuntu 12.10. The wireless card I am using and a bit outdated (Linksys WMP54G), but it has been working when I was using Windows, up until I installed Ubuntu. I tried to load the drivers from the manufacturer's disk I have, but but it is not being recognized. Any help will be appreciated and again, I cannot emphasize enough that I am a noob.

Are you sure it doesn't work out-of-the-box? Most do. –  Seth Jan 8 '13 at 0:49
I too have problems with Ubuntu and my WMP54G. I spent months tinkering and searching but finally gave up and ended up hooking up a hard line to my computer. The best I was able to get with my WMP54G was slightly above dial-up speeds. –  user134949 Feb 23 '13 at 16:13
According to the Ubuntu Forums, installing the proprietary driver using "Additional Drivers" should work. –  Andrea Corbellini Oct 13 at 12:48
