No wireless access

Post by isee »


I installed LXDE on a Gateway laptop running Ubuntu 9.04, or possibly Edubuntu 9.04, which I am trying to get rid of (the Edubuntu).

Anyway, I can't seem to find a way to engage wirelessly. I found the Network and can plug in a LAN to my router and get online, but can't find a wireless selection.

Also, when I do plug in, I can't find a way to break off the network connection except to physically unplug the LAN cable. Right clicking the network icon doesn't do anything.

I have a Broadcom Wireless card that works with Ubuntu, could that be it? Incompatible hardware?

In my minimal Jaunty+LDXE mixyure, I find that using wicd as the network manager solves a few problems for me. Try it and see if it helps....
