[ubuntu] Wireless stopped working [Maverick]view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hello, I'm using Maverick and since yesterday, my wireless hasn't been working. It was working before with Maverick and I don't recall doing any updates that might have changed wireless configurations. By "doesn't work" I mean it doesn't recognizes any networks, as if the wireless was turned off (there's this button on laptops, but it's turned on). (HowTos)

Greetings from taiwanview story

http://crunchbanglinux.org – Hello all. I am a teacher in Taiwan. I have been using Linux since Nov. 2007 when my school gave me a new laptop with Chinese Windows on it. That was the last straw! Since then I have been using Ubuntu, Mint, LMDE and other Debian-based distros on a variety of pc's. I think Crunchbang is the best! Thanks to all the developers for this extremely cool distro! :cool: (HowTos)

[ubuntu] 4 wifi cards, no network. I've almost had it with Ubuntuview story

http://ubuntuforums.org – :( Last week my PCI card, which had always been a bit odd about connecting, (didn't like a \ in the password), stopped connecting at all. It sits there handshaking for 30 seconds and throws up the password requester again. If I turn off encryption it doesn't connect either. This lists as Atheros AR2413 802.11bg NIC. Yesterday's effort. Bought a new wifi dongle with known Linux support. (HowTos)

CD/DVD Drive can read DVDs, but not CDs.view story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – The CD/DVD drive in a friend's Dell laptop can read data on, and boot, from a DVD disk, but cannot read, or boot, from a CD. Seems very odd, eh? Any ideas why this might happen? This problem exists in both Linux and winblows. Thanks. :hattip: (HowTos)
