View Full Version : [ubuntu] Compaq CQ-50 w/ no Wireless Internet Connection

I've got a sister's Compaq laptop, and I first installed 8.04, and the wireless was working. It was using a restricted driver. I installed 9.04, and the wireless doesn't work anymore. There doesn't seem to be a restricted driver available. Any help is appreciated.

Actually, I reinstalled 8.04, and it's not working now! I think I thought it was working because it said there was updates... and I'm not sure why it thought there was updates, because when I try to update there is no connection. So, I put 9.04 back on, and hoping I can get some help.

The restricted driver in 8.04 said "Atheros". It didn't work though.

Please let me know if I can give more details.

I'm still hoping for a solution to this problem. The laptop is otherwise worthless without the wireless internet connection. Please help!
