View Full Version : [ubuntu] Another wireless connection problem...

April 9th, 2009, 10:37 PM
I'm pretty new to Ubuntu (just installed it a couple days ago) and I haven't been able to get my wireless to work. I have a feeling Ubuntu isn't recognizing my router and/or the driver's not installed properly or something?? I've got a 2wire 2701HG-G router and I'm using a Dell Inspiron 6400 with Windows XP Home Edition.

If you need any more info just tell me what commands I should enter and I'll post back with the results.

Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

It's a weenie bit hard to figure out what's the problem with the limited info provided, so here's a few commands to help clear things up.The basic info needed is

your Wireless chip type, which you can find with:
lspci | grep Ethernet
Wireless network configuration, which will be revealed by:
Wireless networks available. Mainly 2 things of interest here: Can you see any networks (if there are networks other than yours present of course)? Can you see your routers network? To find out, run:
sudo iwlist scan
