View Full Version : [ubuntu] Can't connect to internet (Intel 2200BG/HP NC62200

March 11th, 2009, 05:17 PM
I'm totally stumped in trying to get my wireless connection to work. I installed 8.10 on Saturday and it connected straight away but soon after it lost the connection and have looked at dozens of threads in the hope of finding what's up with no joy. I did a fresh install of 8.10 today but that didn't work either.

Here are the results of some scans

I'm a linux newbie and know it's a bit of a learning curve but this has me floored.
