View Full Version : [ubuntu] No Wireless - Edimax 7318UG

December 28th, 2008, 07:17 PM

Having been using this wireless adapter for a good few months it has stopped picking up wireless networks since the computer was off for a few weeks.

I did notice that rt2x_cfg80211 is missing from my working lsmod output which I captured after it was working. Maybe a red herring but you never know.

The output of iwconfig, and lshw -C network below:

lo no wireless extensions.

eth0 no wireless extensions.

wmaster0 no wireless extensions.

I was working previously by manually configuring /etc/network/interfaces and running /etc/init.d/networking restart in the /etc/rc.local bootup script.

Now though - nothing!

TIA :)
