Laptop: hp 6735b with broadcom43xx (not sure which) wireless card
The laptop came with Vista and the wireless toggle button works when running Vista. Enter Ubuntu. Proprietary drivers detected and installed, but external physical button remains in 'disabled' state (indicated by an orange glow, blue glow when enabled) no matter how many times I press it.
I installed Ubuntu 11.10 on my dell Inspiron 1521 due to vista moving slowly but i had wireless with Vista. It told me 11.10 was not supported anymore so I upgraded to 12.04.3. Now I have no wireless connection. I hade no wireless connection with 11.10 either. I have a wired connection but no wireless. I have Ubuntu on two other machines in my home and they work perfect.
I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop using Dell Wireless 1395 WLAN Mini-card (This is what Windows Vista says I have). I have installed Ubuntu as dual boot with existing Windows Vista. Wireless is not working in Ubuntu but working flawlessly in Windows. Here is the output using CODE: lspci. Please take a look at this output and let me know what I should do next. I am a newbie with Linux.
To begin I have a Dell Inspiron 1520. I am dual booting Windows 7 and Ubuntu 10.10. My wireless card is built into the computer. The card is an Intel Pro wireless 3945 ABG. Currently wireless is work on Win 7 but not Ubuntu. The other day when I started Ubuntu wifi was working great but now when I right click on the networks icon the "enable wireless" option is listed in dark grey.
I have recently just downloaded ubuntu 11.10 and before i installed, wireless worked perfectly in windows. Now that i have downloaded and installed ubuntu, i know longer have windows. I do not have a wired connection at my house, only a mifi, so my computer is useless now without internet. I really like the functionality of ubuntu, but need internet.
I have dual-booted my Vista HP Pavilion dv9000 with Ubuntu 9.10. The problem is it doesn't detect any wireless net. I suspect it has something to do with the fact that the wireless switch on the side of my computer seems to be deactivated, regardless of position. Wireless works fine in Vista.
