Suddenly unable to turn on wireless?
I've been using Ubuntu for a few months, on a second hand Compaq CQ60, with no problems.
This morning I turned the laptop on, and the wireless refused to connect. I can't seem to turn it on or off via the button on the laptop anymore, and the wireless light is blue, which it's only ever done when wireless is turned off.
In the wireless menu in the top right, none of the wireless networks etc are showing up. 'Enable networking' is checked and apparently on, but I can't turn on 'Enable wireless'.
The menu also has 'wireless is disabled by hardware switch' appearing in it now.
The wireless connection is working fine with my other computers.
I've restarted the computer a couple of times, had a look at the help menu, but I haven't found anything helpful.
Sorry for the terrible explaination, I'm still blatantly unfamiliar with the OS.
Any help would be appreciated, thank you!
