Running Ubuntu 11.04 on odler Acer Aspire 5100 laptop (Atheros Wireless built in). On the initial install the wireless was greyed out. I was able to connect with cord. Downloaded updates. Wireless started working and I was able to connect to my N-Router. When I restarted wireless greyed out and no wireless networks being displayed.

Tried re-installing Ubuntu 11.04 and wireless still not working.


Note: Wireless is working in Windows Xp pro 32-bit, Vista Home Premium 64-bit, Windows 7 Pro 32-bit, and Windows Ultimate 64-bit.

Wireless also didn't work in Fedora 15.


Is this a common issue.

By the way everything else worked and I am very impressed. Ubuntu 11.04 has some functions similar to Mac and Windows 7. Awesome for free even a good deal at $50.

Hi, run these commands in a terminal please

sudo lshw -C network

lspci -nn | grep 0280

iwconfig

rfkill list all

lsmod
and post the outcome here by clicking on new reply and click # and paste the information between the brackets.

Yes it is common in the since that you have to install a wireless driver when you first install ubuntu.
Thank you

Hi, I suspect that this command may have got it working sudo rmmod -f acer-wmi even though it shows an error.

If you have anymore problems with it post again, also make sure you have your wired connection unplugged when you want to us the wireless,would you please go to the top of the page and mark this thread solved be clicking on thread tools. Thank you so much.

Again thank you very much. This Ubuntu 11.04 has given this 5 year old computer life with features found in windows 7 and mac.

I like the sidebar and how easy it is to switch to open programs and back again.

THIS FORUM ROCKS!
