    HP Pavilion wireless connection

    I have just done first install into HP Pavilion ze4800 with Ubunutu 7.1 . Cannot get a wireless connection. When try, it just opens up a greyed out page for connection types. Anyone got any ideas, like maybe theres a compatible driver somewhere. HP no help at all.

    First we'll have you post back the output from the following, then we'll try to go from there:

    Both in a terminal window - if you have never opened a terminal window before, it can be found under applications/accessories/terminal. Sign in with your normal userid and password.

    type:

    sudo lspci <press enter>

    sudo lsusb <press enter>

    Post the results of those (you should be able to copy and paste) back here and we'll try to go from there.

    Can you confirm the version of Ubuntu that you are using 7.1 or 9 (Jaunty)

    To get a terminal command to put its output into a file use this format
    {terminal command} > {filename}

    if it`s really 7.10 version you installed, you`d better download the latest version (9.04) because each new kernel has support for new hardware. It might work straight after the install. New ubuntu shouldn`t be slow for this laptop. Even if it is you can still install new xubuntu 9.04 - it`s really good.
