Wireless Driver for 10.10 using TP Link Wireless card with Atheros Chipset

  Date: Jan 23    Category: Unix / Linux / Ubuntu    Views: 427

I have just installed the generic Madwifi driver for 10.10.
Can anyone please advise me how I can check whether this driver has installed
and is working.NB I am currently connecting to my router with an RJ45 cable at
present,as I am dual booting with Win XP I can connect wirelessly in Windows,and
would like to do so in Ubuntu.

There is a space between the g and -a. should be

ifconfig -a

See the space in the command. In Unix/Linux commands like
DOS options are separated from command by a space.
