    Unhappy Wireless networks

    I am new at Ubuntu. Just downloaded v 8.10 and it does not detect wireless networks.

    Re: Wireless networks

    welcome Jose

    i would suggest connecting hard wired to get all your system updates before anything else "very important"

    get updates and when they are done reboot.

    upon startup your wireless card should work, if not post some system information at that time.

    go to applications> accessories> terminal.

    type

    Code:
    lspci
    copy and paste the output on your next post, do this after the updates and your card still doesn't work.

    I downloaded and installed all upgrades, then restarted the pc, and still unable to detect wireless networks.

    copied all info found in >accessories >terminal and its quite extensive... you want it all or something specific ?

    Re: Wireless networks

    Hardware drivers displayed: Support for Atheros 802.11 wireless LAN cards
    At the bottom of the window it shows: Driver is activated and currently in use.

    Yet, no wireless conections are detected...

    Frustrating...
