View Full Version : [ubuntu] 9.04 Wireless Network option vanished

July 10th, 2009, 06:08 AM
Whenever I restart or shutdown after the initial restart I loose this option under the Connection icon. It still retains all other options and under VPN Connections I still have all the info saved. I just cannot reconnect to the networks I use.

Yes, the wireless card is recognized and the appropriate driver is there (AR242x 802.11abg). It also seems my keyboard has gone funky (not this one) probably not related but who knows.

Please let me know if anyone has a non-download solution seeing I can't go online with it currently unless I reboot, again.

Oh, forgot what type of laptop:

Acer 5050

It does appear that the issues are quite similar.

I'm almost to the point of regretting leaving Windows.

You know what...forget it. I'm just going to go back to Windows since this community is unwilling to be helpful. A shame really when in concept I like the whole idea of a community driven product and support.
