Wi-Fi connection problems with Acer Aspire One running Linpus Lite Linux


I have recently bought an Acer machine using the Linpus Lite software and, for a few days, all was well and I was well impressed. I updated the machine with all the latest patches, etc, shut down, and that was that. On re-booting it simply refused to set up the wi-fi connection, despite repeated attemps on the connection manager. It recognises only the LAN connection. I have tried resetting the netbook using F2 & F9 etc but to no avail. I will be grateful to anyone who can advise me if anything else be done to reset the netbook short of a complete re-boot?

Did you accidentally turn off the wireless using the switch on the front of the netbook ?

I think I screwed around with the wireless for an hour before I realized it wasn't switched on... :-/

Thanks for your reply to my query, I wish that it was that easy! I have checked everything that can be done on the netbook as it is. My next step is to aquire an external DVD player to plug in so that I can reboot the whole thing with the disc provided. I am hoping this will sort things out!
Happy new year!

could you post the output of lsmod ? you need to run that from a command prompt.

Thanks for the reply. I am not an expert in DOS so not too sure what you are saying. I received an external DVD/CD player to plug into the Acer,so I took the opportunity to load in Ubuntu 8.10 supplied as a trial CD from Linux Format magazine. This appeared to be a very good system to use but it didn't improve the wi-fi link, so, in my amateur mind it seems it might be a problem with DOS on the Aspire. I know that when I first had the machine for two days it ran perfectly but, having tried to enter the internet before it had fully booted up it hasn't run properly since.

I'm not seeing anything on your wireless issue..
you might want to check over at the Aspire one user forums, theres more people there intimately familiar with Linpus Lite..
