I've been using Linux since 2005 and have pretty much tried out every Ubuntu animal since Warty Warhog.

Depending on the iteration, it would be expected that some hardware is not detected (most usually wireless card). Anyways, I'll cut to the chase.

I was recently using 9.04 with automatic hardware detection without any tweaking. Recently, I've just loaded 9.10 on my laptop and it doesn't recognize either the Wired or Wireless card. I am actually typing this from another computer.

Below is the printout from lspci-v. Thanks in advance for your help.

Any suggestions ...

In the past I have resorted to updating the repositories, installing ndiswrapper, and then installing the card. But, since I can't connect to the internet, how can I install ndiswrapper???

I even tried updating to 9.10 from 9.04 via synaptic, since my network cards worked flawlessly under 9.04, and once again, 9.10 cannot recognize any of them. How can ubuntu keep doing this ???

And try the solution.

Yup, tried that solution. No solution.

I also tried booting with acpi=off, but that didn't solve any problems, although, then the network connection were visible, but not usable.

I don't know why this is such a problem, why it was working under 9.04, and doesn't in 9.10????

Is the kernel incompatible or what ????

Was thinking about this some more ...

Since both wired and wireless network adapters were detected right away in 9.04, that means the drivers are written in the kernel. So, it doesn't seem likely that they had been removed.

Is there a conflict that prevents their use? How would I check this ???

Solution, went back to 9.04

This is really bad though, and people wonder why linux on the desktop can't gain any traction ...
