    HP 6570b ProBook Wireless

    Hi, I just installed ubuntu 12.10 on my HP ProBook 6570b. The wireless button stays orange and I have no wireless. When I press the button bluetooth toggles on and off but now wireless lan. I am relatively new to linux and ubuntu. Any suggestions. Thank you!

    No worries we were all new once and we are still learning everyday.

    If you follow the directions in my post above it should get your wireless working.
    Thanks
