    acpi=off boots, no wifi :(

    Hello, I have a problem with Ubuntu. I can boot with acpi=off but no WiFi. Acpi=ht boots but as soon as it connects to WiFi it restarts. Any ideas? I've tried the basic boot options with no luck.

    Re: acpi=off boots, no wifi :(

    No one? I really want to use Ubuntu. Someone must be able to help me.

    Windows works fine, I have to change the processor driver to "Intel proccessor driver" for it to work, otherwise I get the black screens and restarts on windows.

    Specs
    Intel processor dual core 2.53ghz p8700
    ATI mobility radeon 512mb 4650
    4.0gb ram
    Khlb2 motherboard - compal

    How can I troubleshoot this?

    Re: acpi=off boots, no wifi :(

    Hi, acpi=off does turn off the wifi on some computers so you will probably need to find another parameter that you can boot with.

    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/netscript.sh && chmod +x netscript.sh && ./netscript.sh
    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
