  2. [ubuntu] Re: 12.04 Wireless Internet connection works on live trial but not after installing

    Another thought. During the instal I think I said OK to also using proprietary/third party software (or something similar). Should I not have ticked that box?? OldPeter
  3. [ubuntu] Re: 12.04 Wireless Internet connection works on live trial but not after installing
