Hi folks, I'm somewhat new to Linux - my last distro was mandriva back in 2005.
So here I am. I have an HP/Compaq 6715b and I can't seem to figure out how to set up the wireless. I have the wireless LED lit up - per my research thats somewhat of an issue. If it isn't turned on when the system boots it won't work.
$ sudo lshw -C network
description: Network controller
product: BCM4311 802.11b/g WLAN
vendor: Broadcom Corporation
physical id: 0
bus info: pci@0000:30:00.0
width: 64 bits
capabilities: pm msi pciexpress bus_master cap_list
configuration: driver=b43-pci-bridge latency=0
resources: irq:18 memory:c8000000-c8003fff
description: Wireless interface
physical id: 1
logical name: wlan0
capabilities: ethernet physical wireless
configuration: broadcast=yes multicast=yes wireless=IEEE 802.11bg
So that's the info. I'm just not sure where to go to enter the settings.
I followed the steps from http://www.ubuntugeek.com/how-to-tro...in-ubuntu.html
for the encrypted part - since I have WPA2 personal set up.
$ sudo ifconfig wlan0 down
justin@Ubuntu-lappy:~$ sudo dhclient -r

thats where I get stuck.
