    Ethernet and wifi not working

    Hello: I just installed 12.04 in a Toshiba Satellite 64 system this morning. However, I do not have networking capabilities in that computer. I tried to locate a similar problem in this forum but I could not find any clues to my problem. Most people have problems with wireless so they can perform online apt-get, etc. But I cannot have access to the net. So, I am asking for help. Thanks.

    Hi Hadaka: Yes, I do. If you have any files I should install, please let me have them. Or, let me know where to download from. Thank you!

    Ubuntu machine.

    Re: Ethernet and wifi not working

    ok,lets take a look at some info, I think we can get your
    wireless working and go from there.
    please do...
    Code:
    modinfo rtl8192ce | grep 8176
    post the results.

    not having any connection makes this a little more difficult
    but we'll do our best to get you going.
    thanks.

    Re: Ethernet and wifi not working

    ok, I suspect since youhavent done any updates/upgrades
    yet its not there..no problem. I looked on my 12.04 and its there
    so your device is supported by that driver. first lets look at just
    a couple more things, and then hopefully start putting this back
    together...Please do..
    Code:
    iwconfig
     rfkill list all
    dmesg | grep -e wlan -e rtl
    post the results....hang in there we are getting there.

    This is the new output:

    $ iwconfig
    lo no wireless extensions
    $ rfkill list all
    (no output at all)
    $ dmesg | grep -e wlan -e rtl
