    Re: Wireless connect w/12.04 on AspireOne D-250

    When I ran the next two modprob lines, Nothing happened...or at least not that was evident
    Please run them again and let me see:
    Code:
    iwconfig
    sudo iwlist wlan0 scan
    Does it try to connect?

    Yes, It tries to connect. I get the "wireless network authentication required" Click, and it tries and fails and comes back and wants authentication again. Little icon comes up says im offline.

    blackie@sherpa:~$ iwconfig
    lo no wireless extensions.

    eth1 IEEE 802.11 Access Point: Not-Associated
    Link Quality:5 Signal level:219 Noise level:199

    eth0 no wireless extensions.

    blackie@sherpa:~$ sudo iwlist wlan0 scan

    Sorry, try again.

    If eth1 is showing as your wireless interface, then wl, possibly the wrong driver, is still loaded. Please try again:
    Code:
    sudo modprobe -r wl
    sudo modprobe b43
    Verify that wl is NOT loaded and b43 is:
    Code:
    lsmod | grep -e wl -e b43
    ONLY b43 should be listed. Now see if your interface is wlan0:
    Code:
    iwconfig
    Now does it try to connect?

    I don't think I see what I'm supposed to.....? I'm guessing b43 0 means it's not loaded?


    blackie@sherpa:~$ sudo modprobe -r wl

    b43 is loaded correctly. You now have an interface wlan0. Does it scan?
    Code:
    sudo iwlist wlan0 scan
    Does it try to connect?

    Re: Wireless connect w/12.04 on AspireOne D-250

    Is b43 still loaded and not wl? Do you need to repeat the sequence first?
    Code:
    sudo modprobe -r wl
    sudo modprobe b43

    Now I'm getting beyond confused (if that is possible) I'm not sure what you're asking me.... I ran these two commands and get:

    blackie@sherpa:~$ sudo modprobe -r wl
    [sudo] password for blackie:
    blackie@sherpa:~$ sudo modprobe b43
    blackie@sherpa:~$ suod modprobe -r wl
    No command 'suod' found, did you mean:
    Command 'sudo' from package 'sudo' (main)
    Command 'sudo' from package 'sudo-ldap' (universe)
    suod: command not found
    blackie@sherpa:~$ sudo modprobe b43
    blackie@sherpa:~$


    This doesn't look good I suspect

    It looks fine. Now do you have an interface wlan0?
    Code:
    iwconfig
    Does it scan and connect?

    sudo iwlist wlan0 scan
