    Re: help with wireless

    Welcome.

    We can try. Please open a terminal (Applications>Accessories>Terminal) and paste in these two commands:

    Code:
    sudo lshw -C network
    iwconfig
    ... and copy/paste the output back here, thanks, between code tags (easiest to mark out the output code, hit the 'quote' icon then replace where it says [quote] with [code] at beginning and end)..

    Re: help with wireless

    Follow this thread from post #5, ignoring references to Broadcom card. Should fix:

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...light=acer-wmi

    The gist is, run this:

    Code:
    sudo rmmod -f acer-wmi
    Restart and see if you get anything. If it works, run these three commands to make it persistent:

    Code:
    sudo su
    echo "blacklist acer-wmi" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
    exit
    If not, start digging here:

    http://au.yhs4.search.yahoo.com/yhs/...avista&fr2=sfp

    ... as you have this wireless card: Centrino Wireless-N + WiMAX 6150

    Known to be tricky but what release are you using? Looks like 12.04 and you are ready to go by the output of 'sudo lshw -C network' reporting this:
    Code:
    broadcast=yes driver=iwlwifi driverversion=3.2.0-31-generic firmware=41.28.5.1
    PS: Fix in link is for 11.04 but shouldn't make any diff. Incidentally, what is machine and model?
