EMACHINE E520 WIRELESS DRIVER
I finally found a reference to some drivers which seemed reliable, in the sense that they were in default repositiories accessible through apt-get. It’s finding valid wireless networks but I still can’t connect to anyone of them. Let me know if you have the same experience. If you left-click on the network icon to the left of the speaker icon in the upper menubar assuming you haven’t changed things around on your desktop too much , you’ll see a list of the wireless networks around you. That’s the one you want. I too have an eMachine E courtesy of Woot! Any help is greatly appreciated.

Select the old one doesn’t say 5XXX and click on Deactivate. When I click on the Network Manager icon the emachinee next to the speakerI only get two 2 entries: Did you update the kernel like Jimro? That’s the one you want.
Does anyone have any fixes for this issue? I’ll read Jimro’s entries about the kernel update I would imagine this wireless connection would show up here. When I run the iwconfig command, here are the results: The wireless switch on the machine seems to be software controlled and not by ubuntu. Wireless should be working! It takes 2 reboots, which is odd, and a slight PIA, but since it worked immediately sending via wifi right nowI would say it is a good solution: Ok, I did some checking around, and decided that because of all of the broken links on the madwifi page, and because they moved away from sourceforge, etc, that I wanted a more reliable solution.
