Wireless was working great until I upgraded from 10.04 LTS to 12.04 LTS.
It sort of seemed I'd needed to rename the device from eth1 to wlan0, but maybe was another laptop. Anyhow, I tried that, and went from a quick boot that could see the AP but would not connect to a 2-3 minute boot with no network config. Obviously, I switched back to eth1. Now I just still cannot connect.
Just brought a Lenovo Thinkpad X200, and did a fresh install of Karmic. Everything works fine, except the wireless card isn't being recognised. There's a thread associated with the thinkpad but it doesn't seem to make sense.
So I lspci 'ed and got:
00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset Memory Controller Hub (rev 07)
I have a thinkpad t440p with realtek 818b as wireless network controller, is there any device driver available for this controller? is not, which other realtek wifi network controllers are similar to this one, with source code, so that i try to make one?
I have just installed xubunto 13.04 on an old IBM ThinkPad. Wireless does not work. Have a D-Link wireless DWA-652 card installed MAC id 0022BOCCB801. I am sending this from another computer connected via home wireless. Help?
I did a straight install (removed Windows) of Ubuntu 9.04 onto my Thinkpad x200. When I connect via ethernet to my wireless hub, I'm good. But when I try to connect with my LAN using the wireless connection, the machine does not recognize any LAN as available.
OK, so I am truly ashamed because the answer to this is probably very obvious, and I'll gladly wear the dunce cap while I ask this.A couple of weeks ago -- I think after an update -- the internal wireless card in this ThinkPad T30 stopped working the way it had until that point and gave me several choices of networks from which to choose, without connecting to any of them.
