    WiFi on PackardBell EasyNote MZ351

    Hello. I'm having some trouble. I already searched and copied/pasted many commands from here, but still not working.

    The problem is that it recognizes every single wifi connection perfectly but it won't connect to any WiFi.

    It's my dad's computer, he needs it for working so it's kinda urgent. Thank you all in advance for taking the time!

    Can someone please help me?

    Hi, 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

    Re: WiFi on PackardBell EasyNote MZ351

    Umm, the computer that runs linux doesn't have internet (That's exactly the problem). Can I just copy/paste it in notepad (Windows) and save it as a .txt so then I'll transfer it with a pendrive to the other computer and run the second part of the command?

    Re: WiFi on PackardBell EasyNote MZ351

    Still not working.
    I tried booting it from the Live CD on other computer (The one I'm currently using with w7) and it didn't work either. Could it be a problem with Xubuntu itself?

    Here's the command output:

    I even tried with a ubuntu 12.04 Live CD and it won't connect (With the w7 computer). It does recognize the name, though.
