Ugh, the online forums are such a waist of time!!! IF you want to install a wireless PCI card on Ubuntu run the above command and download the “inf” driver from the vendor’s webpage.
The above command can also help if your Ubuntu system freezes after installing a PCI card. The key is to use the intended driver for any card AND install the driver using NDIS wrappers before installing the PCI card. The generic Linux drivers are just too generic, Windows can’t even keep a list of reliable drivers and the hardware manufacturers builf their equipment for Linux!!!!
