When installing ubuntu on my laptop, my wireless device was undetected. After searching on forum, I got the solution, it’s to activate restricted driver. I needed my ubuntu CD-installer to do it. FYI, my laptop is Compaq Presario C714NR series.
- Insert your CD installer
- Be sure that Synaptic using your CD as a repository.
Synaptic Package Manager
Select window menu:
Check on checkbox inside:
Installable from CD-ROM/DVD
- Select menu:
Wait until system finished searching the compatible driver for yours.
- Select the proper driver, then click:
- The wireless device installation is done.
Maybe not all drivers are supported right now, I don’t know. If your wireless device is not detected by the system after doing steps above, I have no clue about it. Maybe you need to install it yourself or using global repositories that is defined in your system.
