http://ubuntuforums.org – Hey guys, been helping someone with their Ubuntu install on an old Compaq Presario v6000 (v6302au specifically it seems) and there's no wifi. Not only is there no wifi, but there's no wlan0 in iwconfig, nor does the wifi card show up in lspci, lshw or lsusb. I'm currently not on the machine, but I'll get some copy-pastes of lshw and lspci soonish. Any suggestions on what to do? The person who owns the laptop assures me that the wifi was working fine before the Ubuntu install, so it's unlikely it had a hardware failure exactly as Ubuntu installed. (Hardware)
