I recently purchased a new Lenovo u430 ideapad that came stock with Windows 8. Windows 8 works perfectly with the touch screen laptop, it’s pretty amazing really.
That being said, i need a development environment for ruby on rails that is portable so I setup the system to dual boot into Ubuntu 12.04
After repartitioning the C drive so that i had an extra 60 GB of space and install Ubuntu everything worked pretty-OK with the laptop, except the wireless.
I ran the following code
lshw -C network
And my wireless network came back as unclaimed, which means that the proper drivers are not in place for it to work correctly. This is what it looked like
ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo lshw -c network

Download the Correct Drivers
Then run the following commands
sudo make install
reboot your laptop and all should be well.
