I am having a similar issue. Except on my ubuntu box, my network card is not recognized by ubuntu. I D/L the installer and the MCE disk on windows. the MCE disk ubuntu recognizes. But it does not see the deb file once I burn it to CD. I am using padus disk juggler. Any help on this would be appreciated. the network card I have in my linux box is a trendnet te100pciwn.
They do have drivers for it for linux for redhat 6. Would they still work on Ubuntu? But copiling them I have no idea how to do.
