Can anyone help me understand how to install this synth driver? (ultranova4linux)

Re: Wifi working but where is my home network?

Hey Jeremy, I input the commands and rebooted but now the machine won't get past the mint logo loading screen. What can I do now?

Edit: Nevermind! It just took about 10 minutes for some reason to clear that screen. Looks like there's still no sign of the ap yet though
