No wireless

  Date: Dec 06    Category: Unix / Linux / Ubuntu    Views: 284
  

I installed Satanic Ubuntu on me EEEPC laptop. It's one of those little
black laptops that are a takeoff of the macbooks.
Anyway, I got it all installed and everything, but it's not detecting any
wireless connections. What's up with that?

I'm not familiar with that Distro. Wireless support is one of the few weak
spots in Linux. Try installing Wicd, if you can get a wired internet
connection, or download on another computer and copy with a flash drive.

Satanic Ubuntu is one distribution we can do without.

not really the place for religious bigotry. if we support the Islamic

Connected to a wired connection and still won't get internet. Weird. Might
try to reinstall.

That was one of the two problems that made me give up on Ubuntu. I had a wired
internet connection that worked for a little while, then Ubuntu just
disconnected and never would reconnect. I had much better result with Fedora,
but that was still with a wired connection, I never could get the ubs wireless
dongle I had to work with any os.

Ok, looks like I installed the 64 bit version, whereas the laptop is
apparently 32. I'll try installing the proper version.

 
Answer #7    Answered On: Dec 06    

The 64-bit version won't install on a 32-bit machine.

 
Answer #8    Answered On: Dec 06    

I reinstalled using the 32 bit version, still no wireless, I'll work it
though.

I took Ubuntu that worked perfectly off of one of my computers to put
Microdaft back on. It worked perfectly with Super Ubuntu OS, but I
needed one Microripoff OS computer to run a spendy program that I bought.
On a fresh install, it would not register or find my internet card! So
don't ever think that we Linux users are the only one having OS
troubles. We just don't have to pay for them!
