I recently upgraded to 11.04 natty narwhal and I can no longer connect to a wireless network (I'm doing this with ethernet). When I click on the wireless network icon it says:
_______________________________________
wireless internet disconnected |
VPN connections -> |
✓Enable Networking |
connection information (not available) |
Edit Connections |

it doesn't list any available connections, and it doesn't connect either


I have a Dell vostro 1000 and a belkin surf n3000 router

Every one run this: *** Edit Just noticed it is a week old thread:

lspci -k
iwconfig
sudo lshw -C networkcopy and paste to a new thread of your own:
Highlight it all and then hit # sign in upper right of Message box.
will put in nice little box to read from. And will show cards and drivers used.

You do not seem to have wireless enabled at all, can you right click on network icon and check enabled.
