    Red face Wireless problems

    I've installed ndiswrapper on the system but it isn't detecting the signal, but in windows it detects the signal (but the signal strenght is very low anyway)

    Re: Wireless problems

    Can you post the output of
    Code:
    sudo lshw -C network
    One ought, every day at least, to hear a little song, read a good poem, see a fine picture, and, if it were possible, speak a few reasonable words...

    Re: Wireless problems

    You could try using the old "bcm43xx-fwcutter" driver, yet that is said to be even less likely to work with the 4318 than "ndiswrapper".

    You might want to follow this documentation.

    Re: Wireless problems

    hi!
    do you have a "special" hotkey or switch for your wireless lan? do you have a Led, which should turn on if your wireless lan works? does this led shine?
    you have this "special" switch and your led doesn't shine...
    in this case, your problem is a quiet common problem with acer laptops. your wirkless card doesn't turn on.
    you can see it if you use the command "iwconfig" in ther terminal. (first switch the card on )
    if you get the message "radio off", your wireless card does not send anything.
    perhaps you can find some threads about acerhk.

    i fixed it so: (you need root-terminal for the following steps)
    1. you have to aktivate acerhk. so we have to open /etc/modules with write permission.
    Code:
    gksudo gedit /etc/modules
    here insert
    Code:
    acerhk
    anywere.

    2. and we want that your wireless card turn on/off if you use the switch.
    so write into the terminal
    Code:
    gksudo gedit /etc/rc.local
    and here insert between the comment and "exit 0"
    Code:
    echo 1 > /proc/driver/acerhk/wirelessed
    3. restart your stystem

    i hope i didn't make a mistake... perhaps you really can find some other threads too.
    Good luck

    EDIT: i found another thread... for example (german thread)
