    can't get my wireless to work =\

    I completely suck at ubuntu 12.04 so far, but its really cool. I downloaded it a days ago off of a different computer to install on my new hard drive when it came in. well it came in and the install went fine and fast. I can't get my wireless to work it says networks disable. i have checked all over the internet looking for a solution. I hope to fix it soon any help is greatly appreciated.

    Re: can't get my wireless to work =\

    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
