Cannot enable networking - system crash

Postby cohen990 » Tue Sep 25, 2012 8:49 am

Hi,
I'm running linux mint 11 lxde on an acer aspire 1 D270.

I disabled networking and now cannot enable it as the computer crashes and reboots.

I've done some research but information is sparse.

I can give you some information but not much.

dan@PC ~ $ sudo /usr/lib/linuxmint/mintWifi/mintWifi.py

I. scanning WIFI PCI devices...
-- Broadcom Corporation BCM4313 802.11b/g/n Wireless LAN Controller (rev 01)
==> PCI ID = 14e4:4727 (rev 01)


II. querying ndiswrapper...

III. querying iwconfig...
lo no wireless extensions.

eth0 no wireless extensions.

wlan0 IEEE 802.11bgn ESSID:off/any
Mode:Managed Access Point: Not-Associated Tx-Power=0 dBm
Retry long limit:7 RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off
Encryption key:off
Power Management:off



IV. querying ifconfig...
lo Link encap:Local Loopback
inet addr:127.0.0.1 Mask:255.0.0.0
inet6 addr: ::1/128 Scope:Host
UP LOOPBACK RUNNING MTU:16436 Metric:1

TX packets:308 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
collisions:0 txqueuelen:0
RX bytes:24156 (24.1 KB) TX bytes:24156 (24.1 KB)



V. querying DHCP...

VI. querying nslookup google.com...
;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached

dan@PC ~ $ lspci -nn | grep 0280
02:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Broadcom Corporation BCM4313 802.11b/g/n Wireless LAN Controller [14e4:4727] (rev 01)



Thanks,
Dan
