Hi,

Firstly, many thanks and appreciation to the linux community for having these forums to help out newbies like me in solving issues

I have a HP dv6t select edition laptop and am unable to run Wireless on it on Ubuntu 11.10, even though the hardware switch on the keyboard is ON.

I did some research and found that these commands are primarily used to ascertain what the issue is. I am posting their outputs too.

command 1 -
cat /etc/lsb-release; uname -a

sudo lshw -C network
