[ubuntu] Dual boot laptop with wifi problemview story

http://ubuntuforums.org – but only on Ubuntu. I have a Compaq Presario set up as dual boot with Windows XP and Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. VDSL modem is upstairs and by itself doesn't have much signal when I try to use the laptop downstairs so have added a Belkin N300 wireless router to provide a good signal in the sitting room. Booting into XP the wifi works perfectly and the little blue wireless switch/light is nicely alight. (Hardware)
