    Wireless Internet "Device Not Ready"

    I just recently installed ubuntu, my first experience with linux. I don't know if it isn't recognizing my wireless card or if it is another issue, but I am unable to view any wireless networks/connect to any. When I click on the network icon it says "wireless" with Device Not Ready underneath. I apologize for the length of the feedback I'm posting, but I was unsure what was/wasn't pertinent so I'm posting all of it. I also understand you fellows here deal with this type of thread a thousand times over so I greatly appreciate those of you who take time to help us lost folk! Thanks in advance.

    Wonder why it's disabled. Do you have a little switch on your laptop that got nudged over to off by the cat? Please let us see:
    Code:
    rfkill list
    Thanks.

    I do have that switch, but I made sure it was in the "on" position. As soon as I boot up though the light next to the switch shows the "disabled" color, and I can switch it back and forth with no affect. I'll be back momentarily with the results of the command you posted, thanks for the quick response!

    Re: Wireless Internet "Device Not Ready"

    Well, that looks entirely normal. Let's see if the kernel has any clues:
    Code:
    dmesg | grep b43
    dmesg | grep wlan
    Thanks.
