You mean, how can you fix the wireless on your own computer? Can you open a terminal prompt (Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal) and type the following:
Code:
sudo lspci -v
give your password, and then post the output that results... We'll get you moving!

You should really create a new thread instead of high jacking one.

The command is 'sudo lspci'.

Hi,

Open a terminal and then 'su -' which will require the root password.
Then issue the commands at the cli in the root console. You should then be able to post the information so we can aid you.

It's lspci, starting with lower case 'L'. If it's not found then, it's because sudo doesn't alter regular user's path. Try 'sudo /sbin/lspci' or 'sudo /usr/sbin/lspci'.

post the output of:
Code:
ifconfig
ifconfig -a
iwconfig
lspci
lsusb
lsmod
please copy and paste if possible because if you dont spell the command rite, the computer wont know what you are taliking about. also post the outputs in code tags to make it easy for us to read.
