    Problems connecting to internet, Ubuntu


    Hi everybody,

    This is my first post at this forum.

    I have just installed Ubuntu 10.10 on my Fujitsu Siemens Scaleo T machine. I have never discovered any problems regarding the WLAN. I can't see any available networks and i really don't know what to do.

    I have read a lot of forum posts about this, but nothing seems to work for me (i'm a totally newbie). I have come to the understanding that the following information can help troubleshooting:

    My kernel:
    Code:
    2.6.35-22-generic
    Ifconfig:
    Code:
    eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:30:05:89:b4:8b

    There's no pci wireless card listed, but you do have a driver for a usb wireless card showing up. Is this a USB wireless adapter you have? If so can you post the output of
    Code:
    lsusb
    dmesg | grep firmware

    Hi,

    Thank you for your quick reply!

    It is not a USB card. When i tried the lsusb, the only thing i saw was the mouse and keyboard.

    How can i get it to see my network card?

    If the linux kernel isn't seeing the card, that's a bigger problem. I guess I would check that it's seated correctly in your machine.

    Check also the output of
    Code:
    lshw -C network

    The lshw command printed:
    Code:

    How can i check if the kernel is seated right? And is there any way to fix it if it isn't?

    Again, thanks for your help!

    Sorry, I meant make sure your wireless card is seated properly in your machine. The Scaleo T is a desktop right? Did you buy it with a wireless adapter? Or did you put it in the machine yourself?

    Okay!

    Yes it's a desktop, 7 years old i think. I bought it with the network card preinstalled and i have never touched anything inside the machine...

    You're positive it has a wireless network card? The ethernet card is showing fine, but I'm inclined to think there isn't actually a wireless card in there.

    Positive! It has been working fine with Windows XP so far. It has a little LED-light on the front saying "WLAN LINK", and it's turned on :S

    I just tried booting Ubuntu 9.10, and the wifi works perfectly fine! I think i will just go with this distro since i only need to do programming on the machine. I just need a distro with great support and lots of documentation!

    I still find it weird that it doesn't work with 10.10 and #! 10...

    Thanks again for your help!
