You need to check first if the wireless switch is turn on.If it is on, check the function key for the wireless. Some computers have function key. Sometimes it is combination of fn and f5. Press those keys at the same time and you should see a pop up window and check if the current status is on. If it is on, uninstall/reinstall the wireless driver in device manager. and restart your computer. If this didn't work. You need to do re installation of your operating system.

Is WIFI installed and ready to go withthis OS?


The OS itself does not contain wifi. Wifi is hardware that is installed in the device. AS far as the OS is concerned, yes the OS does support the wifi networking protocols. You MAY have to load the wifi adapter driver(s) for you device if Windows does not have a native one that is compatible, however. You can determine whether or not the driver is installed by going to the DEVICE MANAGER and looking at NETWORK ADAPTERS. If there is no wireless adapter present or there is an exclamation mark alongside the adapter, then you need to load the driver to get wifi functionality within the OS.

My aspire 3694 computer uses Ubuntu not windows could this be preventing me from having wireless


If you do not have the proper driver to support the WiFi card, it would most definitely be the cause. Also, make sure that the internal WiFi card is enabled (sometimes a combination of an "Fn" key and other key on keyboard - or an out-of-the-way slide switch to send power to the WiFi card) Try connecting to the internet via Cat5 cable and run a check to see if there are additional updates or drivers for your notebook. Good luck!

Download drivers linux


On Ubuntu you have a status icon bar on the top and at the right. It should have the logout/restart button, and a wireless icon. Click on it, find the SSIDs of the available signals, recognize yours and click the connect button/submenu.

How can i get my wifi working on 21005 easynote


Chances are unless you can find a compatible driver for your wireless card under Ubuntu it won't work.You may be able to install an external wireless card under Ubuntu and have wireless.You could have a faulty wireless card too but if it was working before you installed Ubuntu the driver is the problem

I can't get a wifi connection on linux ubuntu 10.10


Ubuntu 10.10 for some reason made WIFI stop working you need to connect to the moden or router with a network cable and let ubuntu update itself. Best thing would be to update to ubuntu 11.04 which is the latest version.
Best to you!

Wireless problem


I'm Guessing your using Ubuntu 7.04... Due to a bug in the native driver shipped with Ubuntu, the wireless card on this laptop is detected and installed but you cannot find any wireless networks. Here’s how to fix it.
* Let’s disable the native Ubuntu driver. Type this in a terminal:
gksu gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist
and insert at the very end of the file:
# buggy broadcom wireless driver
blacklist bcm43xx

* Next, do this in a terminal:
sudo rmmod bcm43xx
* Now, let’s download and install the windows driver for the wireless card. You have to download it from the Dell support website. Click here to download it.
Or you can use the direct link to the executable:
http://ftp.us.dell.com/network/R140747.EXE
Since it’s a windows self-extracting executable, you need wine to use it:
sudo apt-get install wine
then:
wine <path_to_R140747.EXE>
Replace <path_to_R140747.EXE> with the actual physical path to the file you downloaded from the Dell support website. Follow the instructions and extract the files to a folder of your choice. Alternatively, you could extract the files on a windows machine and copy them over to your ubuntu system.
* Now, let’s install ndiswrapper. We need it to load the windows driver.
sudo aptitude install ndisgtk ndiswrapper-common ndiswrapper-utils-1.9
* Let’s install the windows driver:
sudo ndiswrapper -i <location_of_bcmwl5.inf_file>
Replace <location_of_bcmwl5.inf_file> with the path to the bcmwl5.inf file you extracted earlier.
* Let’s make sure the driver is installed:
sudo ndiswrapper -l
You should get something like this:
bcmwl5 : driver installed
device (14E4:4311) present (alternate driver: bcm43xx)

* Now we need to set up ndiswrapper to load our new driver automatically:
sudo gedit /etc/modules
and add a new line that says:
ndiswrapper
That’s it, restart your laptop. During the restart, the wiFI LED should light up. If it doesn’t, try the Fn + F2 key combination. After the reboot, configure your network settings:
System -> Administration -> Networking
Enable the wireless connection and tinker with the connection settings if you need to. You may have to disable the wired connection because wireless and wired connections may not work simultaneously - your mileage may vary in this regard.
Note:
It seems Network Manager prevents the card from connecting to detected wireless networks. I advise you to remove it if you can detect wireless networks but cannot connect to them. To do this, type the following in a terminal:
sudo apt-get –purge remove network-manager network-manager-gnome
Alternatively, you can open Synaptic and remove these two packages.
* Summary:
1.) Install ndiswrapper
sudo apt-get install ndisgtk ndiswrapper-common ndiswrapper-utils-1.9
2.) Install the windows wireless driver
sudo ndiswrapper -i <location_of_bcmwl5.inf_file>
Remember to replace <location_of_bcmwl5.inf_file> with the actual path to the location of the bcmwl5.inf file
3,) Make sure the card has been detected and installed
ndiswrapper -l
4.) Disable the native ubuntu wireless driver
gksu gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist
Insert at the very end of the file:
# buggy broadcom wireless driver
blacklist bcm43xx
5.) Remove Network Manager if it gives you problems
sudo apt-get –purge remove network-manager network-manager-gnome
Reboot
You wireless card should be working flawlessly now.

I Hope this helps :)
Cheers
