View Full Version : [ubuntu] Intel Centrino Wireless

April 25th, 2008, 08:22 AM
i just installed 8.04, and i'm not sure if what i did was really stupid or not, but i installed it with a wired connection to my laptop [and had manually turned off the wirless via the 'wireless on/off' button]. the install went fine and dandy, but when the laptop rebooted, my wireless will not turn on, nor is it recognized by ubuntu.

my question, is there a way to enable the wireless? or do i have to reinstall from scratch? [which is kinda feasible since it's still a bare system]
