http://ubuntuforums.org – Hello all :) I installed Ubuntu 9.04 on my R3000 (quite an old computer ;D), everything looks fine except Wi-Fi. The drivers seem to be recognized, as I can "try" to reach a hotspot. But there are "no hotspots available". I think that the problem comes from my wifi button, which is not recognized by Linux and is so still turned off. I went mad searching and searching around the web so I thought that I should have a try here ;) (please don't ask scans for me I don't have 2 computers at the moment to copy all what the terminal tells (Hardware)
