[solved] Upgrade from Gloria to Helena lost wifi Lenovo s10e

Post by tawan »

Re: My wife's Lenovo s10e broken wifi after upgrade from Gloria to Helena.

As the Lenovo s10e is a netbook with no CD drive and we don't have a big enough USB stick I decided to follow the upgrade path. All went well but just at the finale I rebooted to check grub and all was well - and logged in to find no wifi!

No wifi = no happy wife :shock:

1) I went Administration > Hardware drives and noted that they were not enabled, so enabled them and rebooted.

(still no wifi)

2) Synaptic and select mintwifi and network manager gnome (both already installed, I selected for reinstall)

3) Working wifi!

4) happy wife :D
