I recently got hp Pavilion g6-2313AX and installed windows 8 and Ubuntu 12.04 in it. I was able to find the driver for wireless adapter for windows 8. I was trying to do the same. In order to know the exact adapter information, I gave the following command :
sudo lshw -c network
And I got the following details
*-network UNCLAIMED description: Network controller product: Ralink corp. vendor: Ralink corp. physical id: 0 bus info: pci@0000:02:00.0 version: 00 width: 32 bits clock: 33MHz capabilities: pm msi pciexpress bus_master cap_list configuration: latency=0 resources: memory:f0210000-f021ffff *-network description: Ethernet interface product: RTL8101E/RTL8102E PCI Express Fast Ethernet controller vendor: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. physical id: 0 bus info: pci@0000:05:00.0 logical name: eth0 version: 05 serial: d4:c9:ef:63:7d:97 size: 100Mbit/s capacity: 100Mbit/s width: 64 bits clock: 33MHz capabilities: pm msi pciexpress msix vpd bus_master cap_list ethernet physical tp mii 10bt 10bt-fd 100bt 100bt-fd autonegotiation configuration: autonegotiation=on broadcast=yes driver=r8169 driverversion=2.3LK- NAPI duplex=full firmware=rtl_nic/rtl8105e-1.fw ip=192.168.1.2 latency=0 link=yes multicast=yes port=MII speed=100Mbit/s resources: irq:52 ioport:2000(size=256) memory:f0004000-f0004fff memory:f0000000- f0003fff
I can see the ethernet there, but am not able to find anything saying as wireless adapter ot interface.
Is Network Controller same as wireless interface (Sorry if the question is naive, but am new to these and I dunno how to configure them the right way).?
How can I get my wireless working? I cannot even see an option that says as wireless network in system settings -> network. Can you please tell me how can I establish wireless, given the above information. Your help is much needed.
Thanks in advance.
