p { margin-bottom: 0.08in; } Alrighty folks... here's the skinny: I installed Ubuntu version 9.10, updated to 10.04 via update manager. No wifi. I did about everything under the sun I could think of to get it back online - even went off UbuntuForums for a solution. I came up with a big 0 for my trouble.

So I did a clean install of 10.04 and here I am - no wifi but, see I have learned, I'm asking for help here. What can I try so I can have my beloved wifi back on my computer??

Need to know what wireless card you have first.

Twenty one hours later...

Okay, even tried downloading HP's driver for it and running it through WINE, no dice. Any thoughts from any of you???
