So I just installed 10.04 onto my Toshiba L745D-S4220 laptop. I installed it with a wired connection and it installed fine, but noticibly never asked for any internet connection settings when I installed. So I restart, and there is no connection, even though it is plugged into ethernet and I know that there are many strong wifis around the area. I tried ifconfig -a, it sees the ethernet connection. I tried iwconfig and it says that there are no connections available. It seems that there are no drivers that installed for connecting up to any sort of internet. Help!
The simplest way to get it working is here :
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:lexical/hwe-wireless sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install rtl8192ce-dkms
The other option would be to upgrade to 11.10 (Oneiric)
This is because the necessary drive is included in the Oneiric (3.0.0) kernel.
