live cd has wireless but install doesn't

Asked by Dave Adam on 2011-04-30

When I use the live cd I can go to additional drivers and it will find my wireless card, but on the install it wont. Is there a way to move the driver from the cd to the harddrive and if so which folders do I look in and what file do I look for?

Thanks,

Dave

Okay...Home from work and ran the additional drivers from the system menu WITH a lan line plugged in. All works now. Thanks though
