View Full Version : [xubuntu] Dell Latitude D-400 Intel Wireless issues...

December 5th, 2010, 11:37 PM
Hello. I have a Dell Latitude D-400 laptop. It has an Intel wireless card, and I've scoured the forums as well as the rest of the internet for months trying to get this to work. And I've had zero luck.

I can't even name all of the fixed I've tried, I've tried changing software, installing drivers, and have had no luck, with anything. BUT, most of the fixes I've found online were for different machines, or different wireless cards. So I'm hoping this thread may get me some results.

Right now, it recognizes that the card is there, but claims that 'wireless is disabled'. This has been a maddening experience. I really hope someone can help me.

Also, I've tried Xubuntu, Ubuntu, and now, Lubuntu. All have given the same results.

Hard blocked: yesThis suggests that the hardware wireless switch on your laptop is switched to 'Off." Can you find the switch and...switch it?
