For TOSHIBA laptop Satellite A205-S5866 with Atheros AR242X 802/11 abg rev 01 chipset PCI Express adapter aka Atheros AR5007EG Wireless network adapter to run UBUNTU LINUX OS 8.04.1. Laptop using LIVE CD now is unable to detect my home wireless network and is without sound. TOSHIBA slider switch for Wifi is ON and lit.
Needs step by step specific procedure to activate Wifi detection and sound on this laptop. (Suspect needed driver is not in place). (Windows VISTA is on HDD now and wants to install UBUNTU for dual boot option on HDD on this laptop).
If this works then follow on procedure for SIMPLY MEPIS, SLAX, and DL 3.1 and PCLinuxOS to follow.
7 day creation window extant.
