  2. Re: Problems with 10.04 and HP mini Netbook. Temp/Startup/Batt.

    Bumpedy bump.....

    Does anyone know if it's worth installing Desktop Edition? The battery issue is very annoying.
  3. Re: Problems with 10.04 and HP mini Netbook. Temp/Startup/Batt.

    -update-

    I've found that disconnecting the battery for a few seconds, and then turning the laptop back on causes the 'Critical Temp. Reached' message to not display.

    Once on, the laptop just...
  4. Re: Problems with 10.04 and HP mini Netbook. Temp/Startup/Batt.

    Hi all, I'm having the same issues with 10.04 NBR on my HP Mini 1030NR :(

  5. [ubuntu] Re: Putting screen to sleep stops connectivity?

    Well, in the Power Management dialogue box, the screen (not the computer) is set to be 'put to sleep' after 30 mins, or when the lid is closed. When this happens (on AC and battery) connectivity...
  6. [ubuntu] Putting screen to sleep stops connectivity?

    Hello all,

    It has come to my attention that if my laptop's screen (not the computer itself) is put to sleep, then connectivity stops until it is woken up again.

    This is very annoying!

    Any...

    [ubuntu] Re: Yet another 9.10/Broadcom issue

    I'm still something of a new person in this world, however, this is similar to a problem I had with a different card after trying to get things to work.

  9. Re: Netgear WG111v2 (USB) DHCP(?) issues with Karmic

    <<Bump!>>

    I notice that in the above code, the dongle is saying that there are "no IPv6 routers present"

    Not sure if it's set to only look for these... or even the exact nature of v6 and v4.......

  11. [ubuntu] Re: Installing Netgear WG111 v2 Wireless Dongle

    Okay!

    Next problem?

    I think I've killed the dongle!

    Now when I plug it in, there is no light, and it's not detected by Wicd, network manager or iwconfig. :O

    It does show up as connected...

    So - Not being able to solve the DHCP issues, I've tried installing windows drivers using Ndiswrapper. This makes no difference! The same DHCP problem remains..... but my other...
  13. [ubuntu] Re: Installing Netgear WG111 v2 Wireless Dongle

    Well, thanks for the link. I tried commenting out the "rfc3442" lines as suggested in the other thread, but to no avail. I still get the same output for the dhclient command. :(

    My internal card...

    Thanks bkratz.

    Incidentally, I now have both the dongle and my internal card running, as wlan0 and eth1 respectively. Previously I had blacklisted one or the other, but with no discernible...
  15. [ubuntu] Re: Installing Netgear WG111 v2 Wireless Dongle

    Lambengoimor: I installed Wicd - it didn't change anything, but does have more options than the network manager. :)

    Hi there, I too am having issues with this damned dongle....

  18. Re: Non-existent WEP key required by public access point....?

    Further to this, I've now checked the same two access points with Windows, and the same problem presents itself.

    I'm wondering if it could be some sort of Japanese networking thing?

    And help...

    Yep, I tried pointing Unetbootin at the net based installer (Xubuntu 8.04) and it went off without a hitch....
