I cannot deem to figure out how to get my Wifi working on my Older Dell precisionm4300 laptop I have tried different linux distros and now installed opensuse but wifi doesn't even exist never mind using it lol . the wifi did work perfectly in Windows 7 so I do know that it does work.
i am not able to get my wifi working consistently in ubuntu. At times when wifi is switched on in windows and I switch to ubuntu, wifi networks are recognized. But if i try and turn on wifi in ubuntu, there is no change. I get the message that the wireless is disabled by the hardware switch and indeed I see no blue light to indicate that the wifi is on.
when i restart my Dell inspiron 5010 it do not detects the wifi drivers and the hotkey for turning the wifi card on is not working either. I am using proprietary drivers "Broadcom 802.11 Linux STA Wireless driver source from bcmwl-kernel-source (proprietary)".
I need to click and apply "Do not Use the device" and then switch back to the proprietary driver.
i have ubuntu 12.04. And my problem is that the wifi is disabled. It says that the wifi hardware is disabled and it does not switch on when i switch on the wifi . The control always shows that wifi is switched of. The same computer has windows too and my wifi works just fine in it.
can anyone please send me the solution to this problem
my email id is firstname.lastname@example.org
Please i need my wifi.
anyone is welcome to leave tips and wifi tricks here
I ran in to a problem setting up wifi on a dell studio
tried every wifi fix I could find on this forum
I would have started to think it was a hardware problem had it not worked running windoze
the problem was the external wifi switch was off and windoze was ignoring it
check the external wifi switch
I have had my phone about a year now and I had it rooted, S-OFFed and running a custom ROM within an hour of getting it. It took me a while to notice since I never use WiFi but I have had several ROMs such as CM, ViperS, HyperMIUI, Elegancia and the only issue I have had is that no matter what I could never get WiFi to work for more than an hour.
