View Full Version : [ubuntu] Wireless stopped working on Ubuntu 10.10

May 3rd, 2011, 02:41 AM
My wireless was just working fine, untill last night. But doesnt any more. I have a hp machine and a Broadcom wireless lan driver. In the active driver it shows that the Broadcom STA driver is active, but still shows that the wireless is disabled. What is going on ?

Output of lspci command:
01:00.0 Netowrk Controller : Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11a/b/g (rev 02)

Output of sudo lshw -C network:
*-network DISABLED

Sorry for not having searched the forum thoroughly.. I did a rfkill unblock all to get the driver enabled..
Can someone mark this post as solved.. I dont seem to find a way to do it.

Ubuntu Rocks!!
