I all. I have a Toshiba Satillite A665-S6095 running Ubuntu 32bit version. And I am unable to connect via the built in wi-fi.

When the computer is first booted. I get a message in the GUI that the wireless device is not ready and then after a while it just doesn't find any wireless networks. Even though I know there are networks available and broadcasting their SSID's.

I am running Lucid 10.04

Any help would be great.


Thanks

It is indeed a firmware issue. You can fix it as outlined here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=9986425&postcount=12

I spoke too soon. It does indeed enable me to see wireless connections. But I still cannot connect to any. I attempt to connect to my home connection disabling all security on my router. Not even mac filtering. The computer see's my router. But will not connect to it.

Are there any informative messages?
dmesg | grep wlan
sudo cat /var/log/syslog | grep wlanThese are likely to be quite long, so please trim out the repeats and try to only post the messages that seem troublesome.

Thanks again for the help.

I had to run out and when I returned I rebooted the laptop and it worked fine and connected as it should.

I still seem to be having some issues.

I run 10.04 LTS of Ubuntu with GNOME.

1) The Network Manager Applet vanishes from time to time if the laptop cannot get a connection.

2) The laptop, after rebooting or coming out of hibernation, will not reconnect to my home router. This home router only uses mac filtering, no wep or other encryption is currently set on it. It takes several attempts (before the network manager vanishes completely) and or several reboots before the laptop does reestablish a wireless connection.

3) This issue repeats itself if I take the laptop to any other wireless access point. With or without a security key. Even just a fully open connection.

Thanks.

Anyone able to help with the issue that I posted?
Using a laptop where it takes multiple reboots to connect via wireless is very annoying and time consuming. I should be able to connect via wireless on boot up or just after hibernation on a laptop (or any other wireless enabled computer).

I don't know where to look for errors so I can post them and then get a resolution to this issue.

Thank you again.
