PROS: Linux is strong.

CONS: You may be weak.

I hope it helped you.

(Your question is boring).

w1k0; A quick scan tells me that everyone followed a time-honored rule:
"If you can't say something nice, then don't say it."--------except you.

I recommend that you not do that again.

You can look at this for 'Ohio' & Site: http://www.colug.net/ for the Columbus LUG. There's a meeting today Oct 31 13:00 to 15:00.



EDIT: 'the best advice ever "rm -r /"(as root of course)' Do you really think that is cute or necessary in your sig? What if someone does follow that lead? Somebody (stupid) may just do that and I for one would not want that possibility to occur. Sure, it's absurd that anyone would do that but why include it openly?
Just my

Downloaded onto my laptop

Hi again,

I downloaded ubuntu with Wubi. I have a cheapy notebook, Compaq CQ50-210US.

AMD Athlon X2 64

nvidia graphics

wifi certified

My wifi adapter is an Atheros AR5007 802.11b/g Ad Hoc

I've done some reading, but cannot figure out how to make the wifi work. It appears that the adapter is compatible.

I'm connected to out desktop via a secure wi-fi network. I was hoping to do the same with ubuntu.

Not sure what information that you needed, so please excuse the ignorance.

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks in advance!

Try changing to 'Access Point Mode' and restarting everything, modem and router first.

Failing that: Not an expert to put it mildly but, to try to get the linux working (then worry about other stuff later): Remove the radio router, if you've got one and just plug the modem directly into the computer. Then restart everything.

Stress I'm not an expert so get back for probably better advice.

I’m sorry. I was obviously in a bad mood when I wrote these words. So excuse me.

My point was: someone new still asks here the same question and a lot of Gurus, Senior Members, Members and LQ Newbies try to explain him or her why Linux is worth of his or her polite attention. So a lot of more or less experienced people reply once a week in a good faith to the same question. Sometimes I have an impression that someone who asks simply tries to provoke a discussion just for fun. It’s so easy to type the same question in Google and review the results single-handed. It could be even the question: “Please explain the pros and cons of Linux to me - thanks”.

Of course it’s only my impression and it doesn’t excuse my impolite comment. So I apologize once again.

I agree this question is really not worth discussing through 2 pages, I would instead reply to a zero-reply thread. I always scan through less replies in a thread and click on it and try to help out if I can to the best of my abilities.
