View Full Version : [ubuntu] Wireless internet not working. Asus Apire laptop.

May 1st, 2011, 08:12 PM
I have a 6 month old Acer (sorry not Asus as per the heading) Aspire laptop. I downloaded Ubuntu and cannot connect via wireless. It works fine via ethernet.

Having spent several hour reading this forum, other web pages and the help file, I actually still have not got a clue either as to what the actual problem is or how to begin solving it.

Is there a simple answer? If not, I'll go back to windows 7 as Ubuntu seems anything but the promises made.

Thank you.

To be quite honest, I was thinking as per the hype on the Ubuntu website that things would be simple but if there's a problem with something as basic as connecting to a wireless modem and if what has to be done to find a solution is as simple as trying to store molten metal in a chocolate teapot, then I'll stick to windows 7.

On top of that, the 'wireless' problem seems to be pretty common.........

Next time, I'll buy a Mac.

Good bye Ubuntu and thanks for giving me two days of headaches. Even Microsoft didn't manage to do that.
