Re: wireless not working (dual boot Windows 7) It works in windows.
Are you up for another connection problem? I have an ASUS dual boot UbuntuStudio / Windows 7 that cannot connect wirelessly.

I tried to turn the power off like in the HP machine. It didn't work.

Here is what I get:

Everything seems to be working now. I had a friend work on it for a while. Network manager was causing the problems. Now Network manager works, and everything is logical after that.


I will post what was done when I better understand it.
