    Lost WiFi in Saucy (ASUS EeePC 701)

    Have done a clean install of Lubuntu Saucy onto an ASUS 701. Running fine, except no WiFi.
    WLAN0 will see the nearby AccessPoints and when I try to access my home network the the proper encryptino key nothing happens ? ?
    I've been searching the forums for a possible solution for about a week now - getting frustrated!

    EDIT: I tried a Wireless N USB adapter and it didn't provide WiFi either.

    See the following output from the wireless_script from the forum:

    Might try WiCD That's what I use.

    Here's a pretty good tutorial for setting it up: http://peppermintos.net/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=5916

    Works great in Ubuntu, et al.

    Re: Lost WiFi in Saucy (ASUS EeePC 701)

    Thanks VinDSL . . . I did give WICD a try but I hit that problem about 'Could not connect to wicd's D-Bus interface'.
    Got so wrapped around the axel trying to solve that problem that I had to do another clean install . .
    Thanks for the link on how to get past the D-Bus interface problem in WICD.
    Shall give it another try . . . !

    EDIT: I got WICD working, but can not find where to enter the encryption key for my home network ? ?

    Cranked up the Dell Latitude (Gorgar)...




    'Xanthador' is my WAP.

    • Click on 'Properties' and a second window pops up.


    I use WPA2 encryption, so:

    • I selected 'WPA 1/2 (Passphrase)'
    • Entered the passphrase
    • Saved


    And, it's off_to_the_races.

    Welcome. I love WiCD (and hate NM), so it's my pleasure.

    I understand your frustration. I've always named my machines after Ghostbuster characters.

    Xanthador is my WAP: http://ghostbusters.wikia.com/wiki/Xanthador

    Gorgar is my Dell Latitude: http://ghostbusters.wikia.com/wiki/Gorgar

    And, I'm on Zuul, right now: http://ghostbusters.wikia.com/wiki/Zuul

    Gives me comfort, in some odd way. LoL!

    Thanks for your help VinDSL . . . I installed Peppermint into my ASUS EeePC 701 and all is good.
    Will mark this thread solved.

    Just thought I would mention...

    Yesterday, I installed the 3.10.12-saucy mainline kernel on my raring-based Peppermint 4 Dell Latitude D620.

    Works great. A definite improvement, all the way around.

    Haven't tried it on my Eee PC 1000HD yet.

    Might want to try Linux 3.10.12, if you feel adventurous.
