Wireless 'device not ready' after update

Postby sebaldus on Thu Jul 14, 2011 3:57 pm

Hey all,

I recently installed LMDE on an Acer Aspire One D250. After my first update and a restart the network manager says "device not ready" and I cannot find a fix. I'll post some terminal output for your viewing. Any help would be much appreciated as I would like to continue using LDME in the future!

When I was able to get to a LAN connection and run a "sudo dpkg --configure -a" the wireless worked again. ;) Loving the new LMDE.
