View Full Version : [ubuntu] Lost wireless connection all of the sudden.

Hi guys.

I am a total Linux newby, but frankly I've had it with Windows.
So here's the deal. I've installed Ubuntu 10.04 a week ago, and everything was just fine. After about a day of use the wireless started dropping from time to time. Sometime all I had to do is wait a few seconds and It would reconnect automatically, and other time I had to restart the computer.

This morning when I turned my computer on something very odd happened- the wireless would disconnect and reconnect every few seconds. I plugged the Ethernet cable and after half an hour like that the problem cleared on it's own. And now all of the sudden I lost wireless connection again and this time Ubuntu can't find the wireless network at all. I tried Network manager and Wicd.

Please guy internet connection is super important form my work, and not having it is absolutely killing me. Please help.
