    [ubuntu] Re: laptop wifi card

    I know it's not the same model, but I've replaced the network card in my 1501 with the Intel 4965agn so I could try N-speed with my router.

    Ubuntu supports trim, 10.10 certainly does. There are plenty of threads out there on this if you do a search. :D

    [ubuntu] Re: Power manager problems

    Could be something to do with the "Set Display Brightness to:" being 100%. Basically your saying "Don't Dim" with that setting.

    Try lowering it to 75% or something, see if that has any effect.

    [SOLVED] Re: 4965AGN - Crashes on battery power

    Sorry but this didn't work. I'm fairly certain it's the network card, as it was fine with the original Broadcom card in it. I swapped over so I could utilise the n-speed on my router.

    [ubuntu] Re: Laptop Wireless issues

    Hve you tried using a wired connection and then looking at restricted drivers to see if anything shows up.

    Most of the Broadcom drivers get installed this way.
