wireless issues

Postby Sio » Fri Jul 06, 2007 5:12 pm

Ok yesterday I loaded up mint 3. Everything was working great, I had my xyzel wirelss card working, but when I ran the update, my card is no longer seen and I am unable to remove the driver. I am really new to linux so i have no clue what to do.

try using the old kernel.

at boot when the grub screen appears go down one to the original kernel and press enter.

there have been issues with newer kernels and wifi and other hardware.

Now where was i going? Oh yes, crazy!

If you are not dual booting you have to press Esc to "catch" the grub screen
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
