View Full Version : [ubuntu_studio] Just installed UbuntuStudio 13.04x64--rt2500 wireless hardware issue

September 8th, 2013, 01:19 AM
UbuntuStudio installed grub recognized other Debian based OS--Crunchbang and Mepis, need Puppy CD to boot Puppy. All is as expected except can't connect to wifi while running studio. NetworkManager reports disconnected by hardware switch and the enable wireless ticbox is greyed out. I like to run multiple boot systems on my tower and none of the other distros mentiioned above have this problem. FYI also had similiar problem with Fedora, CentOS and Mint however didn't address those forums on the matter. While in Studio lshw reports Wireless adapter as disabled gives it logical name wlan0 and shows up in lspci as rt2500 device. Is there a command to enable wlan0 or rt2500? Ifup wlan0 reports 'ignoring unknown device wlan0=wlan0.':-k
