    Can't see wireless network on Ubuntu 11.04

    I only just installed Ubuntu 11.04 dual booted with Windows 7 which I have been using all this while. On Windows 7, I use a protected wireless network. I also have access to a wired network. Both the wireless and wired network work perfectly on 7.

    During the installation of Ubuntu, it asked me to connect to a wireless network, which I could without issue.

    However, once Ubuntu 11.04 completed installation, its no longer able to detect the wireless network! It's not even connecting to my wired network.

    What should I do?

    Re: Can't see wireless network on Ubuntu 11.04

    Here is what I would do given your description:

    - Connect your system to the internet via ethernet cable.

    - Select Hardware Drivers and install any wifi related drivers it suggests.

    Reboot and see what happens.

    Good luck.

    Me too, I have the exact same issue.

    I installed Ubuntu 11.04 along side Windows Vista and during installation it could connect to my wireless network fine; now it doesn't even detect the presence of any wireless networks.

    It is quite frustrating

    Any help/fix would be appreciated.

    Re: Can't see wireless network on Ubuntu 11.04

    I'm brand new to Linux. I just installed Ubuntu 11.04 and cannot connect to wifi either. Ethernet works fine, but there are no wireless networks being detected. Updated my drivers, looks like it should be running but nothing is detected in network connections.

    Running ubuntu by itself. No dualboot.

    Please help!!!!

    hey guy welcome to ubuntu forms first lets take a look at your hardware open your terminals (ctrl+alt+t)and type in
    Code:
    lspci -nn
    then
    Code:
    lsmod
    then
    Code:
    rfkill list all
    then this last one takes some time to load
    Code:
    sudo lshw -c network
    then paste it all here for us to see we will get you fixed up or at least try real hard. Once again welcome to ubuntu forums

    Since I'm having a similar problem here is the output for my system. My problem is intermittent so my computer works fine for several starts and then for a few starts I won't detect anything. It will take several reboots before working again.

    Here is the output when things aren't working:
