I am installing Ubuntu 10.10. Do I need any sound or WiFi drivers after installing it?

    Hi

    That card does need proprietary drivers. You will, however, need an optional Internet connection to download them, maybe using an ethernet connection. Then start Hardware Drivers from the System / Administration menu, and it will hopefully find a driver for your wifi.

    SYSTEM > ADMINISTRATION > ADDITIONAL DRIVERS. The OS should then locat drivers to work with your Wifi adaptor. Then just a simple matter of putting my my WAP key for my router atfer that.

    Same for the sound driver Applications > System >Administration > Hardware Drivers
    Applications>sound&video>alsa mixer. if its in the playback mode then adjust it.
