    Actually I lied, updating the kernel did not fix it. The problem was these tablets have a hardware lock on the Wi-Fi adapter and the only way to unlock it is to boot into Windows and run the MSI specific unlocking software which comes with the tablet. Then once the adapter is unlocked, you can install Ubuntu and it will work.

    I have 10 of these tablets here and I installed Ubuntu onto one of them before I figured this out so I'm actually in the process of getting an external DVD reader so I can reinstall Windows, unlock it, then reinstall Ubuntu. I have no idea why MSI did this.

    Amen, brotha! A Rega and a Linn.

    I am likewise stunned by MSI's actions. The conspiracy theorists among us will smell something funny here. I won't name names, but its initials are MSFT (NASD: 28.15).

    We look forward to your report.

    Just went through all 7 tablets that I have here, all of them were the same. Wi-Fi was hardware locked so I had to boot into Windows, run the MSI hardware unlocker, reboot and install Ubuntu. I've seen few things dumber than this.
