I have Ubuntu on a flash drive so that I can enjoy the "live" experience. All was well for hours. I had closed the lid on my laptop a few times during my learning (and greatly liking) Ubuntu. I noticed when I would open the lid My wifi reconnected each time. I found that peculiar but thought that must be an Ubuntu thing. One more time and this time I had no connection. I had an error message which basically said my wifi was to far away (5-6 ft). If I boot to Windows I have wifi. If i tap escape when powering up the pc it gives me startup boot options and never makes the wifi connection. I can't find any settings to correct that and I'm stumped. Any help would be truly appreciated. If it matters my Windows version is 10. I'm doing this from my Windows 7 laptop using Windows.

So is this thread now SOLVED?
If so please mark it as such using the thread tools at the top, and please also give a link to your other thread (I presume it must be this one http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2293669&p=13351670#post13351670 ), but it looks as if that also may be SOLVED?
