Where should the wireless driver reside in Ubuntu 6.06?
I have a generic PC with Win XP on one HD and Ubuntu on a 2nd HD. The
wireless card is Encore ENLW1-G2; chip set Realtek 8185 (rev 20). I
downloaded the driver and transferred it to Ubuntu, but I didn't have a
clue where to put it. I double clicked the tar ball and it appeared to
automagically unpack and go somewhere ... maybe nowhere. So far, I've
wasted an inordinate amount of time on it w/o success.
P.S. I surface every year or two, then disappear. This time, I hope to
have time to get a working Linux system to substitute for XP.
