http://ubuntuforums.org – i have a acer 7720 with vista and xubuntu 9.04. my wifi does not work...i post the problem in "installation & upgrades" and was informed that in orded to help me information from several commands needed to be known. 1.) lspci 2.) lshw 3.) iwconfig after posting this information and sleeping the nite i had 107 lookers but no help commits, including "no commit" on my asking if posting all this information puts me at risk to a possible hacker attacking my computer. ANYWAY i edited the post this morning and removed the information...MY QUESTION IS Am I at risk now!! (That info was posted for many hours) and how do I fix it short of buying a new computer and getting a new internet connection. if i'm ok ..GREAT.. if not then i'm stupid and what can i do? all this worryy and my wi-fi still won't work. Thanks to all who respond ... Paul ... (Hardware)
