I just install ubuntu 12.04 but wirelless not works(windows 7 wirelless works).

I open my windows 7 and see under Network Adapters:

   Edimax 802.11n Wireless Adapter

   Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller

Which drivers i should download to install them on ubuntu 12.04 to make wireless work? And how i install this drivers on ubuntu after i copy them to usb.

(I can have only wireless connection not wire - soo i nhave to dowload the drivers with windows then copy them to ubuntu)

Is that a PCI or a USB adapter? What is the output of

lspci | grep -i wireless


lsusb | grep -i wireless

respectively? Do you have NetworkManager installed?

dpkg -l | grep network-manager
