I have a old laptop here model Fujtisu Siemens Amilo Pro V2040 and have no real problems aside from the wireless.
It didn't work after installing and when I entered the BIOS and enabled wireless it then found my wireless and was able to connect to it but constantly prompts me for a password and will not load any pages.
I am running Fedora 17 on a Fujitsu Siemens Amilo li1718 laptop with Radeon Xpress 200m graphics card. When trying to resume after suspend I just get a blank screen. Also the wireless light goes out. No buttons work. I have to hold the power button to force the computer to turn off, then reboot.
I have been Using Ubuntu 9.04 on a Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Li 2727 and I recently performed a fresh install with 9.10. When I use the "sudo modprobe acerhk" command to turn the wireless on, it says "FATAL: Module acerhk not found." I'm lost and finally realising this Fn+1 software for the wireless is a real pain.
I made a fresh xubuntu 9.10 installation on my laptop (amilo pa 3553 fujitsu-siemens,amd64 architecture).
The problem is that the network manager applet does not allow me to enable wireless. I have always had problems with my own wireless card, but I have also tried 2 usb wireless sticks: Belkin Wireless-G USB Adapter and D-link DWL-G122 (allegedly linux-friendly).
