View Full Version : [ubuntu] Interesting Wireless Problem after Reinstall

November 25th, 2010, 06:14 AM
I recently reinstalled 10.04. The wireless worked fine for a week or so, but not it cant get a connection for more than a few seconds. Ive downloaded Wicd, and after an eternity of trying to connect, it tells me that no IP address could be established. I can connect no problem when I plug in via Ethernet cable. Nothing when I try to use the wireless though.

Are you aware of the wireless trouble shooting guide?


Try some of the checks in that guide.

If you have no luck with the guide please do

lscpi | grep -i net > Wireless.txt

iwconfig >> wireless.txt

lshw -C network >> wireless.txt

and post the wireless.txt file here :-)

Might be worth trying

rfkill all

first :-)
