    Dell inspiron 5420 networking and battery

    Dear all
    I compile of how to manage networking and extend battery using ubuntu 12.04 64bit, i think it will work with 32 bit

    For Networking

    http://andri.andriani.web.id/wired-n...dell-inspiron/

    To activate wire network

    Install compat wireless with this version

    compat-wireless-2012-02-28-p

    ./scripts/driver-select alx

    make

    sudo make install

    reboot and plug in your wire network



    After you wired network up now its time fire up the wireless

    download this file

    It’s here: http://wielki.tk/vostro/debs/wlan_amd64.deb

    sudo dpkg -i wlan_amd64.deb

    first time it will fail then you have to do

    sudo apt-get -f install

    then it will get all file need to install wlan_amd64.deb

    reboot your laptop

    all done

    after you set up your networking then you tweak to make battery life extend longer

    http://andri.andriani.web.id/dell-in...420-on-ubuntu/

    First what you have to do is install bumblebee not that transformer bumblebee but this,

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:bumblebee/stable
    sudo apt-get install bumblebee bumblebee-nvidia
    Then you have to set up acpi_call, you can follow how to implement itu from here

    after you finish set up then reboot

    I hope it will help you with inspiron 5420, if you have another solution please share with us

    Thank you
