    Exclamation Google Chrome OS- Wifi

    Hey.

    I have installed Google Chrome OS 'Flow' build by Hexxeh on my Toshiba Satellite Pro L500.

    However, I can't get my WiFi going, the only way to get internet is Ethernet.

    I login with the default login 'facepunch' and from there I can't connect to any Wifi. so I can't do anything.

    Note- I'm using a Toshiba Satellite Pro L500 with Google Chrome OS Flow booting of a 1.88GB USB. My wifi card works perfectly good with other OS, such as, Windows 7, Ubuntu...

    Please Help

    Thanks

    There are several Google chrome forums that might be more helpful.

    Also, you should wait more than 1 hour before bumping, per the forum rules.

    The reason Google Chrome(ium) OS is so light and fast is because Google took out a lot of the drivers, prioritizing on netbook hardware. This explains why your wifi works in other OS's, but not this one.

    I'm able to login to Chrome OS using the default login details
    (facepunch for password and username). However when I am in the OS, I
    have to turn on the wifi to do anything else,so.. I can get the option
    to turn on wifi. But once I click 'Turn on WiFi' nothing happens, no
    wifi. It wouldn't let me choose my network!
    Help!!!
