View Full Version : [ubuntu] WiFi picks up neighbors but not mine

September 3rd, 2010, 05:51 AM
Hello Ubuntu Community...

I installed Ubuntu 10.04 on my new laptop. Everything seems to be running smoothly with the exception of the networking department.

My computer is a Toshiba Qosmio X505 with a 8192 Realtek Wireless card built in (I think its called MiniPCI or something)

If you need any more information, let me know the terminal commands and I'll get it right away.

First, rule out signal strength problems. Test your laptop right next to your router. If you can still see other APs but not yours then verify that your router is configured correctly and the transmitter is turned on.

What are you using to view APs, Network-Manager?
