    Wireless Not Working for HP dv2013


    Hi Gurus,
    I am very new with Ubuntu Linux. Installed Ubuntu 10.10 to my HP dv2013 recently.
    but I have problem with my wireless setup. it is not working and of course will detects nothing. it was working fine last time with windows xp.

    fyi, i did browse the forum regards to this issue and i gathered some info required as recommended by Linux Gurus.
    Attached is the "wireless setup.txt" for your reference.
    Should you need further info, please let me know and show me how to get those.

    Need your advice on how to activate my wireless back as i am relying on this to continue my works outside.

    Your assistance highly appreciated.

    Several issues.

    1. You seem to have a wired ethernet connection (eth0). Unplug it.
    2. wlan0 shows that your WiFi adapter has been powered off. Are you sure you haven't set the switch to OFF? Also, if you disable the radio in Windows, sometimes Linux is not able to turn it back on, and you need to re-enable it in windows first. At the least, the system is recognizing that you have a wireless adapter.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.

    Hi Rubberman,
    thanx for ur respond, really appreciate.

    1. i did unplug the wired ethernet eth0 when i turn ON my notebook
    2. the wifi adapter is ON (blue light) but still the "Wireless Network > wireless is disable"
    3. what do u mean by "disable the radio in Windows"? and how do i re-enable it in windows?
    btw, i believe i have totally remove Windows XP from my notebook.

    fyi, i do have the "iwlwifi-3945-ucode-2" in /lib/firmware.
    from my reading, i should do the "build and installation". how do i do that? or should i?

    again, ur assistance highly appreciated.
