View Full Version : [ubuntu] Can't connect to the wireless internet

April 17th, 2010, 03:49 PM
So i just installed my Linux 9.10. I dual boot it with my original windows xp.

As the title says i can't connect to my wireless network. It works fine when iĉm in xp, but whenever i switch to Ubuntu it turns it self off. Now I'm a COMPLETE noob at this. So if anyone can can help, i hope they can give me step by step instructions.

I know you need more information and all i can give you know is what i know and can find from my xp.

HP Compaq laptop, 6735b (Comes with Win XP Pro, dunno which service pack)
a bit over 2.5 gb ram
2.2 ghz processor
Graphics: ATI Radeon 3200 (700mb)

Now i wan't to give you my ethernet card, but i have no idea how to find out what its name is.

Beforehand i want to say thanks for all your help. (There is /might be some typos and stuff, but i'm Norwegian so, sorry bout that...)

download, install and run this in WINDOWS (only) (since you can get on line with windows)

It will tell you more than you ever need about that computer.

in Linux in terminal
It will give you your hardware list.
