I have a Gateway notebook and installed Vista on it (successfully), but cannot get my new Ubuntu 10.4 installation to connect with the internet wirelessly. I can get a list of routers (on the triangular button) and it tries its hardest to connect, but without result. The "Additional Drivers" installed with the Ubuntu 10.4 system -- located in "Applications" -- is corrupted so is of no help. I tried, in vain to search for a Linux driver on the internet, but could find none. Please, help me connect to the internet with the proper driver. (email@example.com)
Fresher kernels have more driver. So try a live cd/usb with Ubuntu 11.10.
Or if you have wired connection (that was not clear from your question) add the kernel ppa
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:kernel-ppa/ppa && sudo apt-get update and install
linux-image-generic-lts-backport-oneiric Reboot, and I think your wireless should work.
