View Full Version : [ubuntu] Wifi not working on Compaq C700

November 26th, 2010, 08:36 PM
So, I installed ubuntu 10.10 on my Compaq C700, but when I started it up, I am unable to enable wireless. While reading through other boards, it is apparently common for this computer. However, I have not seen anyone address how to enable wifi on ubuntu 10.10
So, do you think someone could show me one to do please?
Sorry, I'm a newb to ubuntu.
Oh, and if this is relevant:
