I have run ubunto 11.10 from dvd to test it on my HP Pavilion DV5000.
My laptop internal modem is an AC97 Soft Data fax Modem with SmartCP
The network adapters are:
Broadcom 802.1b/g WLAN
Realtek RTL8139/810x Family Fast Ethernet NIC.
Ubuntu is great (as is Mint actually) but neither of them seem to start my wireless card. Do I need to install something or will it work if I carry out a full installation?
Would like your advice, as ubuntu will ensure I can keep using my laptop, which works very quickly with Linux.
