    Exclamation Wireless don`t work

    Hi,
    I just installed Ubuntu 8.04 on an Acer Travelmate 660, but I can't activate wireless, on Ubuntu 7.10 it worked.
    Can somebody help me?
    Sorry for my English

    Re: Wireless don`t work

    hi there, could you please give us some information about what wireless card you are running?

    (paste output of sudo lspci)

    also, can you paste the outputs of sudo ifconfig and sudo iwconfig

    I'm so an idot! It was enough press the button of the wireless to turn on it!! A friend of mine had the same problem and we have them two hours to seek a solution to then discover that just press a button!
