View Full Version : [ubuntu] Update wrecked my wireless access

November 16th, 2008, 02:29 AM
Today I rather foolishly accepted the recommended updates (if it aint broke dont fix it!!) - result I can no longer connect to internet via wireless. (doing so now from another PC)

Is there any way to roll back Ubuntu to a previous state - i.e like windows restore point? This is INSANELY annoying and just the sort of thing to me give up on Ubuntu Linux, which idealogically I dont want to do.

I am running an ACER extensia 5220 laptop and I originally followed instructions at madwifi.org/ticket/1192 to get wi-fi working. Now I have a broken machine - please dont let me revert to windoze !!!

Thanks for any help!

Hi there,

Which version of ubuntu?

Have you tried to look in the menu:

System-> Administration-> Hardware Drivers

Hope this helps
