View Full Version : [ubuntu] 8.10 Latitued e6400 wireless and ext. monitor problem

November 26th, 2008, 07:44 PM
Upon first installing Ubuntu 8.10 it worked flawlessly. However, after running updates it changed part of the wireless security settings. It removed the setting for WEP 64/128-bit hex and replaced it with WEP 40/128-bit hex.

My second problem is that when I first boot my external monitor is fine. However, as soon as I get to the log-in screen to picture goes straight the laptop monitor (open or closed--it doesn't matter). Also, the Screen Resolution window just shows one display and shows it as "unknown" (this is obviously the laptop screen though). If I use the function keys on my laptop and tell it to mirror or switch after I boot it displays to the other screen but it runs very poorly because the OS doesn't control it.

Please Help..
