Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu For over six years I have been hunting for a Linux distro that would allow me to replace my Windows installation. I've tried many versions of RedHat and Mandrake, and more recently, Gnoppix, Kanotix, Ubuntu, Fedora, and Knoppix. In my evaluations, I would start with high hopes that the latest and greatest distro would install smoothly, support my hardware, and create a genuinely usable system, but none of them really worked--until now. I recently came across the first distro that satisfied all my requirements: Ubuntu.

RE: NO wifi card detection.
by Ecio on Tue 8th Feb 2005 22:13 UTC

In my case Ubuntu perfectly detected my wifi card (vanilla orinoco 11b card) on my laptop during installation, tried to get the AP, then asked for SSID and wep password, got Ip via DHCP and everything worked flawlessy (i updated it after the install and still updates it via wifi). Im currently using Hoary (5.04) but Warty did the same (i tried it)
