    wireless problems acer travelmate c110

    Hi, i'm completely new to Ubuntu. Managed to get internet working through wired connection but am unable to connect through wireless.

    Tried scanning for networks and manually connecting but does not seem to work. As far as I can tell the driver is installed properly and it is turned on (although not sure).

    Can anyone help me?

    Thanks!

    Switching from Network Manager to wicd may help. See this thread:

    Re: wireless problems acer travelmate c110

    Thanks alot.

    I installed wcid but have the same problem. I can't seem to roam or 'see' any wireless networks.

    Is it possible my wireless is not turned on??

    Possibly.

    Have you removed the ethernet cable from your machine?

    Open a Terminal window. Type the following:
    Code:
    sudo lshw
    Code:
    iwconfig
    Code:
    ifconfig
    Code:
    cat /etc/resolv.conf
    Post the outputs here

    The ethernet cable was taking preference over your wireless adapter in being assigned an IP address to your machine.

    With the cable removed restart your machine and see if the wireless card picks up your wireless network.

    On my C100 I can use the wireless adapter by setting it at startup in the bios setup screen. It worked perfectly with gutsy and still works with hardy, although, after the upgrade, sometimes the pc hangs while loading linux.
