Re: Wireless stopped working on wifes netbook

Might be an issue with the wireless card on the netbook. I restored netbook with factory installed software.

The wireless card has a red x on it. I am unable to enable it with fn+f2 switch.


Thanks for all help.

Re: Wireless stopped working on wifes netbook

What if I don't see the grub screen? Is there a way to have that come up on start or see what it is in a terminal window.

Re: Wireless stopped working on wifes netbook

Thanks for the response. There is no physical switch. The FN + F5 do not have any effect.

DVD Shrink or DVD Fab

Does Linux Mint 11 have an application similar to dvd shrink and dvd fab.

having to get dual layer dvd's.

blacklisted disabled wireless chipsets

I am wondering if someone can explain to me why some wireless chipsets work right after install and some like the Atheros
chipsets are disabled by a software switch. I couldn't get mine to work before I modified a file.


Thanks
