    [ubuntu] Re: Internet Filter

    Frustrated with my level of ignorance, I decided to go the OpenDNS route instead. Nothing to install; just redirecting DNS. Seems strong so far. I wish there was a way to block objectionable...

    [ubuntu] Re: Internet Filter

    Okay,so I'm feeling pretty foolish right now. As I noted in the OP, I'm not too savvy with Ubuntu (read: I ain't got a clue). I was hoping that Dan's Guardian would just be as easy as downloading...

    [ubuntu] Internet Filter

    I'm looking for an internet filter that I can install with Ubuntu, where I can set parental controls to limit where my kid goes (what she sees) on the internet.

    I also know next to nothing about...
  5. [ubuntu] Re: HP Pavilion DV6000, wireless card doesn't work with Ubuntu

    Seems that worked fine. I then rebooted, still have a blue light, and have some freedom now. :guitar:

    Thanks again!

    That last command didn't work, Joseph. It says:

    randy@randy-HP-Pavilion-dv6000-RG383UA-ABA:~$ modprobe b43

    Wireless is up and running! I wish I knew what all happened and what those commands did. Nevertheless, thanks so much for your patience with me and for fixing my problems. I'm sure I'll be back...
  8. [ubuntu] Re: HP Pavilion DV6000, wireless card doesn't work with Ubuntu

    Hi, Joseph.

    Should I try this or wait to continue on with what nm-geo is suggesting? I don't know what messes with what.

    Thanks,

    Okay. Done.

    Not installed.

    b43-fwcutter was already installed. I installed firmware-b43-installer.

    It doesn't look like these are blacklisted, unless I'm not understanding what it says. ...

    By the way, I'm here for a while today. So I'll be able to reply to any other replies fairly quickly in-between other things I'm doing around the house today.

    Thanks again for your help.

    Okay, everyone. I *THINK* I've done what you've said. Still an amber light, in either switch position. Here's some output...

  12. [ubuntu] Re: HP Pavilion DV6000, wireless card doesn't work with Ubuntu

    Hi, nm_geo.

    I'm not sure if you're suggesting a particular command for me to enter. Regardless, the switch isn't working in either position. I'm not sure if slid-to-the-right is ON or OFF. But...
  13. [ubuntu] Re: HP Pavilion DV6000, wireless card doesn't work with Ubuntu

    I'm back briefly. Will check in later to see any insights. But that last command didn't produce anything other than another command prompt. Maybe I missed something...

    I appreciate that.

    When I do both of those commands, it doesn't list anything. All I get is...
