View Full Version : [ubuntu] Wireless stopped working after updates

July 14th, 2011, 07:11 PM
I have a TOSHIBA NB505 Netbook with Ubuntu 11.04 installed on it. NOT the netbook version, but the regular version. Last night update manager popped up with random updates so I installed them and ever since then my wireless stopped working. Ubuntu cannot even recognize it, but my iPod conencts fine and so doesn't Windows so it definately a Ubuntu issue. I have a Realtek 8176 wireless card.
