    Wireless not working after update

    I used Update Manager yesterday (since message said there were updates) and now I am unable to get the wireless to work. Ethernet is ok.
    The one thing that was changed during the update was the kernal version as listed below. If I boot to the previous kernal, everything works fine. Hopefully I have most of what is needed from following the "Howto post a wireless issue".

    Code:
    Computer:  HP Pavillion Model s5730y Desktop
     O.S:  Ubuntu 10.04.4
     Processor:  AMD Phenom II 511
      
     Conditions prior to update via Update Manager (wireless working normally):
     kernal: 2.6.32-38-generic x86_64

    I have tried to provide what has been asked for on other posts. I'm not great using Terminal but will sure try to get anything else that you need. Thanks

    Re: Wireless not working after update

    Did you compile the driver from source? When a newer kernel version is installed, you must recompile:
    Code:
    cd Desktop/RT3090file  <--or wherever you have the files
    sudo su
    make clean
    make
    make install
    exit
    Reboot and it should be working.

    Re: Wireless not working after update

    Thanks for the fast response. No, I did not compile the driver. I downloaded and installed "rt3090-dkms_2.3.1.3-OubuntuO~ppa0_all.deb" prior to the last update. That download is still on the computer. I haven't done anything with it so I would need guidance as to what to do; I presume extract the files and then use the information you sent to get a particular file(s) compiled.

    Re: Wireless not working after update

    I would simply try to install it; either it will install as expected or a hopefully informative error will be thrown:
    Code:
    cd Desktop <--or wherever the deb is located
    sudo dpkg -i rt3090*.deb
    If there is an error, post it here and we'll try to fix it.

    Re: Wireless not working after update

    I presume you are aware that 10.04 is no longer supported, so any updates etc etc will now not be available in the normal way. I am not sure if this is the reason for your problem, but nevertheless I feel you should be made aware of the situation.

    Re: Wireless not working after update

    chili555 - That took care of the problem. Thanks so much. Based on your first reply, am I to assume that this same procedure will have to be performed each time Update Manager installs an updated kernal?

    ajgreeny - Thanks, I was not aware of that. The computer I am working on is for my sister, and she prefers the look and action of the 10.04 desktop compared to newer versions. Personally, I use 12.04 and have not had too many issues, even though at 70+ I'm not as quick as I was years ago.

    A deb file installed along with dkms should not require re-installation at each new kernel update. However, things don't always go as expected. Glad it's working!
