    Re: Kubuntu 12.04 Wireless Disappears

    So, after a few reboots it quit out again. I re-ran the script and rebooted and it did not work...I'm not sure what's going on why it would show up sometimes and not other times. Having a non-working wifi connection is not really an option for a laptop.

    Any suggestions or anything else I can try or remove or reinstall or anything?

    Hi, I suspect something else is going on.

    Maybe a hardware failure or bios issue.

    When you can not connect copy and paste this command in the terminal (ctrl+alt+t) please:
    Code:
    wget -N -t 5 -T 10 http://dl.dropbox.com/u/57264241/wireless_script && chmod +x wireless_script && ./wireless_script
    It will download a script and create a text file in your home folder with wireless information so we can see the condition of your wireless at this time and the Mac address, WPA key and WEP key are removed for your security, then reply back and attach the netinfo.txt file.
    Thanks

    It turns out it is a physical hardware issue - I did more testing and it is physical. I will make this thread as resolved and look into a good usb wifi adapter that plays nicely with linux.

    Thank you for your help.

    Talking Re: Kubuntu 12.04 Wireless Disappears

    found that 12.04 upgrade is not a good version to do upgrade with get half way through the install and the system can't shut things down to finish the proper install and then after restart it quits...

    got this fixed by going back to original distro.. and burnt a 12,04 install cd...

    so hay take that upgrade,.....
