Ubuntu Networking :: Hp Pavilion Dm4-1173cl Wireless Connection Is Not Working?Jan 22, 2011
I have just installed Maverick meekat on my new laptop with Wubi, and I have been trying to setup my wireless connection, but i couldnt. The first thing I tried was going to System>Prefrences>network connections, and clicking on the wireless tab. I tried to add a network think manyally, and I miserably failed.
here is the information I have of my laptop as of now after doing the lspci command in the terminal:
Network controller: Brodcom Corporation Device 4727
USB Controller: Intel Corporation 5 Series/3400 Series Chipset USB2 Enhanced Host Controller Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd.
Also I have read somethings about ndis or using the windows driver and things of that sort. Whenever I am using windows, my wireless connection is working perfectly. So I dont know if there is a specific way to activate my drivers, or if my computer is just not capable of having wireless connection on Ubuntu.
