    12.04 runs wifi fine, 12.04ce can't find wifi device on HP laptop

    I am running an HP 251G laptop. When I install 12.04 it finds and connects to my wifi with no problem. When I install 12.04 Christian Edition I cannot find the wifi device integrated to the laptop. I would like to run 12.04ce.

    Does anyone have any suggestions as to the difference? I would prefer a 12.04ce installation if I can.

    Thanks

    Please follow the instructions in this post to download and run 'wireless_script' (experimental version) and post back the report it generates : http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=13024222

    If possible, also post the same report from default Ubuntu 12.04 (even if from a live session) where the wifi works.
