I mean no offense to anyone when I say this but if someone tells you using windows is wrong, using linux is wrong, using a virtual machine is wrong, dual-booting is wrong, etc, then pay them no mind. Computers and operating systems are a means to an end and everyone has their own way of meeting that end. There is no correct way to meet this end other than the manner that it works for you. The only exception to this IMO is when someone is trying to teach you something or you're simply avoiding a good learning experience because it's "hard" . I congratulate you on wanting to make Ubuntu work for you. Ubuntu isn't the only linux distro out there, as I've used many. I always find my way back to Ubuntu. It's simply a great operating system with an even better community.
As far as fixing your driver, google the linux driver for your card.
- Code: Select all
lspci | grep "Network"
# the above will display your wireless card.
Also, if you cannot find your answer here don't forget to try on ubuntuforums.org. There are many great people there who really want to help.
