no wireless after 3rd boot

Postby hefetza on Sun Aug 26, 2012 11:53 am

Hello,
I've recently install LMDE and on the first couple of boots everything went fine. Recently nm-applet can't detect any wireless networks. Here's what I get when I run mintwifi (which for some reason isn't very informative when it isn't run as root):

-------------------------
* I. scanning WIFI PCI devices...
-------------------------
* II. querying ndiswrapper...
-------------------------
* III. querying iwconfig...
lo no wireless extensions.

eth1 no wireless extensions.

-------------------------
* IV. querying ifconfig...

Anyone?
This is a real bummer. It's obviously impossible to use LMDE without wifi.
Thanks
