View Full Version : [ubuntu] My computer is unable to connect to the internet in WindowsXP but can in Ubuntu

November 29th, 2008, 05:58 AM
I installed Ubuntu 8.10 recently on my AMD64 Machine side by side with Windows XP. I got the Wireless working within minutes in Ubuntu. Everything was working perfectly on both OSs. I have been 90% of the time on Ubuntu and only booted XP to use Visual Studio. Three days ago, I logged into XP to find that I can't connect to the Internet, even though the Wi-Fi signal is excellent. It shows "Limited or No Connectivity" all the time. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the Wi-Fi umpteen number of times to no avail. I wouldn't have bothered logging into XP, if not for Visual Studio.

Please help me.
