    I don't see any line that says wifi or wireless. But I know I have wireless. I have a "network controller" ? EDIT: I found through windows what it is (I think). Microsoft virtual WiFi miniport Adapter then a device below it is Realtek RTL9190 802.11n Wireless LAN (mini-)PCI NIC Is there more you need?

    Another newbie thread. Thank you experts!
    Yeah, I downloaded linux a while ago after hearing how great it would be. And it is great! But I can't do much on it because my wireless internet card won't work with it. I think I need a driver, but how do I get one of those without access to the internet while on Ubuntu? It's dual-booted with windows 7 right now though eventually I'd like to just use Linux. I don't know what other information would be helpful so I'll just throw in some probably irrelevant stuff. It's a gateway desktop with wireless LAN 802.11 b/g/N. Windows 7. AMD Phenom II processor. 810 Quad Core. I don't know what else would even sort of be useless to you linux Gods, but please help if you can.
