WiFi not working on EasyNote MX66

Postby Nawaxo » Fri Jan 18, 2013 1:32 pm

Hello, I keep having a prolbem with wifi connections on my Packard Bell EasyNote MX66. Cabled connections work fine and I can see wireless networks, but connecting to said networks doesn't seem to be possible. No error messages are displayed, except a "Wireless network disconnected" message after a while. I ran mintWiFi.py while disconnected from cable network. Running mint 14 nadia.

Code: Select all

sudo /usr/lib/linuxmint/mintWifi/mintWifi.py

Have you tried with no encryption (wep, wpax)?
I generally don't use salutation, valedication, or please when answering your questions. I'm not a jerk; you have a question, I have a possible solution.
