    Exclamation Wireless disabled

    I am illiterate. Trying to follow instructions from: https://help.ubuntu.com/11.10/ubuntu...are-check.html
    When I type in the command:

    sudo apt-get install 1shw

    I get this:

    E: Unable to locate package 1shw

    Ubuntu 11.10

    Thanks

    For future information, the command "ls" is short for "list." It is often used as part of other commands.
    lshw = list hardware
    lspci = list all components connected to PCI bus
    lsusb = list all components connected to USB
    and so forth
    Break it, fix it, learn something.
    People who never make mistakes seldom make anything!

    Yep, copy & paste is the way to go. Other than see your hardware in terminal, are you trying to accomplish something else?
