I recently install Ubuntu 12.10 (Gnome Ubuntu, to be exact) on my Toshiba Satellite C55D-A5362. The problem is that I can not seem to get the wireless adapter to work. When I check Network Setting, there was not even a Wireless Connection (the Wired worked fine, though). I suppose that this must be a problem with the driver, but I can not find any. Can anyone help me with that?


Thank you. This is the output of 'lspci -nn | grep 0280':
