View Full Version : [ubuntu] Wierd message 9.10 wireless setup

October 22nd, 2009, 11:07 PM
I can't seem to get my wireless going with 9.10 and when I try to put the info in manually, I get this message:

Error editing connection: property '%s' / '%s' invalid: %d

Anyone have a clue? I have commented out the bcm43xx line from this command gksudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf but still nothing. This is so frustrating.

Which wireless card do you have, and which module does it use? If you have not restarted your computer after commenting that line from blacklist.conf, you still need to disable that module for your current boot session:

sudo rmmod bcm43xx

If you need to enable your wireless card's module, do this by entering:

sudo modprobe MODULE

Where MODULE is your module's name.

I got it going finally. Updating and rebooting seemed to do the trick. Thanks.
