    Question Wired And Wireless Connections Not Working.

    I have just installed Ubuntu on my old Samsung laptop, and I am having problems with networks. Upon first boot, my wi-fi connection worked fine and I could surf the web etc. but the next time I booted my laptop I was told that the wi-fi was not working (or something similar) and nothing I can do seems to fix the problem. I have tried using an ethernet cable and connecting the laptop directly to the router and have also tried numerous fixes on the forums, but nothing seems to work. When I click on the network button in the top right toolbar, no connections are displayed.

    As I am a linux noob, I am sure the fix is incredibly simple!!!

    Thanks in advance.

    Just to add more information, I have checked drivers (I think), and I have tried uninstalling numerous things that people have said may cause bugs.

    I suggest instead of troubleshooting, to just install "linux-firmware-nonfree" and reboot twice.
    If this doesn't work then troubleshooting may be a good option.

    Re: Wired And Wireless Connections Not Working.

    Did you upgrade the kernel? It looks like to me that several of the modules are not built into the kernel.
    If you did buid the kernel or do a minimal install you will need to install the linux-image-extra deb as well.

    You can try:
    Code:
    sudo modprobe ath9k
    but I do not believe it will work.
    Thanks

    You have very few modules loaded so I suspect other things will not work also.

    Still curious about the other questions I asked.
    Thanks
