Hey, I just got a new laptop (Thinkpad W500) and installed Kubuntu Karmic Koala on it and it seems it doesn't detect my wifi card at all, which is a Thinkpad wifi bgn( Realtek 8172 chipset). Any help on this, please?
Edit I've tried lspci (nothing shows up), lsusb (the same), wifi is enabled from bios, it works fine under windows 7. Also, I've tried an older version of ubuntu and it still doesn't show up.
More details: I've tried using ndiswrapper (doesn't work on karmic 64 bit), tried the realtek driver ... doesn't work either. I've switched to karmic 32 bit for ndiswrapper and it's not working for that either. While I was there I tried to use madwifi with a pae kernel - obviously that failed gloriously.
I really need a super user!
