    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

    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.
