Wifi is not Working

Hello All,


I have a Tecra A8/Satellite Pro A120 Laptop.

In windows XP wifi is working fine by just switching on the wifi button.

But when i have to work on Ubuntu 8, its not working. Its not detecting wifi available and even not bringing the wifi interface in ifconfig.

I guess it requires wifi drivers for Ubuntu. But on Toshiba support site, when i was searching for Tecra A8 wifi drivers, it is only listing wifi drivers for windows not for Ubuntu, Fedora or linux. Please suggest, whether the drivers are same for Windows and Ubuntu and if so, then why it is not detecting in Ubuntu 8 OR there is no wifi drivers for Ubuntu and Fedora and if so, then how could i use wifi in those OS....?


Thanks and Regards
