My wireless connection worked for months; suddenly it's gone.
I run an Asus EEE1215M, and my wireless connection goes through a router next to my television set. The connection worked very well until 4 days ago. I have another computor with ubuntu that connects using the same router and it was not affected. I use ubuntu with LXDE, initially with 12.04, but I thought upgrading might solve my problem, so I'm now with 12.10 and the same problem. The hardware switch is on. The network controller is Broadcom BCM4313. iwconfig just shows : "eth0: no wireless extensions, l0: no wireless extensions". The Network Manager icon on the panel does not display any access points. "Networking" is checked. Wuth "Network connections" from the main menu I can edit the name of my wireless access point and put the password, but this doesn't make any difference. In NetworkManager.conf under ifupdown "managed" is false, but I think that is normal. In the log files (which I haven't succeeded in transferring), the first indication of trouble is:"FATAL cannot load /lib/modules/3.5.0-19-generic/modules.dep no such file." And actually there is not such a file, because the intermediate link is not 184.108.40.206 but 3.5.0-17. Then the log goes on with bluetooth complaining for pages, and then with NetworkManager seeming to be succeeding to identify the access point, but then we have "(eth0) deactivating device (reason 'managed') ." iwlist does not identify my router:"interface does not support scanning".
