View Full Version : [ubuntu] Wireless Card

December 16th, 2009, 01:36 AM
I installed Ubuntu 9.10 on a Dell Inspiron 1720 and it works fine. When Update Manager loads all of the upgrades it finds, the wireless card is not found and not working. The wireless card is a Gigabyte B & G & N variety. It works great with just the 9.10 install but when Update manager does its thing, then it doesn't work. The wireless icon on the task bar at the upper right is not shown. Any things for a newbie to check on this? Right now I have installed 9.10 and turned Update Manager off so I don't run into the problem again.
