Hello dear friends,
Dell Supported modem driver doesn't work on Ubuntu Karmic. After installing the driver, the computer complains about hsfconfig command. More detailed info can be found here:
Just 1 question, does your network interface work? If so I suggest that u connect it through that and then go to:
Systems (tag) and on the second page Hardware Drivers icon.
After clicking on that it gives u options on the missing hardware drivers you need.
Please install and tell me if that worked.
It worked for my wireless card on my Dell.
I think the new Ubuntu does not have any propriety drivers as default and you need to get hooked on the net to install them.
I had the same problem when changing from 9.04 to 9.10
I do hope that was useful and if there is any way else I could help please do not hesitate to contact me.
Hardware Drivers icon doesn't show anything in my Inspiron 6000 laptop. Also, it doesn't depend on if Dell driver is installed or not: In both cases, nothing is shown...
The only other link I can give you is http://www.linuxant.com/drivers/
I'm sure that you can get something similar there. The problem is I don't actually know what chip-set you are using.
I hope this would be of some help.

The problem with linuxant drivers is that their bandwidth is limited to 14.4KB...
Some guy in the ubuntuforums have said that he solved the problem and wants to upload the updated driver...
Finally my problem solved 😉

By the way, Is it better that Dell looks at the code and updates its driver?
