View Full Version : [ubuntu] No wireless?

April 24th, 2008, 03:16 PM
I installed hardy on my fiance's laptop through the wubi installer just so she could try it out. Everything works fine except the internet(wireless). I cannot enable the device with the wireless button just above the keyboard. So I rebooted back into vista to make sure it was enabled there and then rebooted back into ubuntu. But it just does not want to enable. Any suggestions?

Please run lspci -v from a terminal while you are in ubuntu, and paste the results here. Details about the wireless card in the laptop are need.

The same problem. Fresh Ubuntu 64bit install on hp dv2000 (AMD Turion 64 x2 mobile TL-50; NVIDIA GeForce 6150 chipset)

I did the same "sudo apt-get install b43-fwcutter then reboot" and it worked for me too.
