I have tried everything I have read about this. The problem is I can't find out what card it is. The only thing that comes up is Realtek Semiconductor Corporation. There are no name on the card. No resctricted drivers shows up.
I have tried the solutions here and from other sites. When I tried them, I get error 1 and 2.
I have managed to install the wired network, by using the suggestions found here. But every solution for wireless fails with the errors 1 and 2.
Can anyone please help me?
Here is the output of sudo lshw -C net:

And here is the reason for the error 2, I have to search to find out which one gave me error 1:

I have found out that the wireless card is called rtl8723ae.
When I looked at the homepage for toshiba, then I found that this laptop is delivered with ubuntu or windows 8. So it is a mystery that it wont work. The one with ubuntu was not available in my country.
I see from other posts that it should work in 12.04. Do I have to downgrade from 12.10 to 12.04? This is where I found that information: Drivers for Realtek wireless module for Toshiba C850-A965?
