so i tried to finally set up my wireless internet on my inspiron 1521 with ubuntu 8.10 yesterday i upgraded to the new 9.04 thinking there would be something new that would make it easier to connect but nothing.
so i find this https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wi...eisty_No-Fluff and do all the steps (2x)
now i have no ehternet connection or wireless on my laptop!!
when i look at 'connection properties' on the taskbar the only connection in the drop down menu is 'lo' and the status is idle with 44 packets sent and receieved at one point i remember it haveing eth0 and wlan0 before following the tutorial!
lo no wireless extensions.
eth0 no wireless extensions.
wmaster0 no wireless extensions.
wlan0 IEEE 802.11bg ESSID:" "
