View Full Version : [ubuntu] WIFI on Dell 1720 Laptop problem

July 27th, 2009, 09:50 PM
I'm an Ubuntu newbie.
I installed 9.04 to replace my buggy Vista installation.
It worked fine and picked op my Wi-Fi, and I was able to go online.

Once I run Update manager, my Wifi becomes invisible - The wireless networv Icon greys out the Wired Networks, so I can't see any.

I'm completely stuck after hours of searching for info.
I reformatted, it worked again but once I run Update manager or Synaptic, I loose my Wifi.

Being offline complicates it, but I have a desktop WinXP computer.

I'm an experienced Windows user, but competely new to linux.

Please help
