IO would check this page out from an internet connected computer. If you can downlado the driver and tell me what extension the download is in (Maybe extract it and post a screen shot of the archive contents) I'd be happy to help you figure out how to get it installed

  • I am not for sure what file to download i did do the backports 3.16 file that was suppose to install the driver for me but it still doesn't work. Commented May 1, 2015 at 14:19
  • Try to download the one that corresponds with your Wireless card, it should be on the list in that page. Could you give me a little more background on what You've tried so far so I can look into that and where you're at with this issue? Commented May 1, 2015 at 14:26
  • I have modded a file in the backports 3.16 that goes with my wireless card then installed the folder from a list of instructions, i have switched the wireless on through terminal. when i installed Ubuntu it asks do you want to connect to a network and it shows my network card but no wireless connections, i can see that it knows what wireless card i have but i cant switch the wireless on, (probably due to driver). I am going to download ipw2100 i guess thats a linux driver for my wireless card. Commented May 1, 2015 at 14:33
