    Network Adaptor not recognised

    I have a Toshiba Satellite C855-2LH laptop with a Realtek network adaptor (recognised when I type lspci -v) RTL8723AE. However, I have started using Knoppix 7.2 and it doesn't list any wifi connections at all in network manager. Is there an easy fix? I am a novice linux user, but like experimenting!

    Greetings, paulfiske.

    At least for LiveCD-size Knoppix 7.2, Synaptic says it doesn't include 8723:
    Binary firmware for Realtek wired and wireless network adapters

    This package contains the binary firmware for some Ethernet adapters with
    the RTL8111/RTL8168 chips supported by the r8169 driver; and wireless
    network cards with the RTL8188, RTL8192 and RTL8712 chips supported by the
    r8192_pci, r8192s_usb, r8712u, rtl8192ce, rtl8192cu, rtl8192de and
    rtl8192se drivers.

    * Realtek RTL8192SU/RTL8712U firmware (rtlwifi/rtl8712u.bin)
    Ubuntu users have the same problem, apparently.
    The following link indicates it's possible to compile your own driver.
    Good luck on that.

    An easier solution might be to find a NetGear WG111v2 us adaptor for about $15.

    Hope this helps.
