right then, Ive just dont a fresh install on a old laptop and am needing to download the proptirtary drivers to get the wifi card going. So ive set up a Bridged connection from my Win8 laptop over ethernet to the old laptop but its still not working.

Prior to moving to ubuntu i was using the laptop as a wifi bridge for my win 8 desktop all i need to do now reverse the process. but its not as easy as it was in Vista and we all know how bad that is :/
