How to wake up...
I'm not certain this is a linux problem or a hardware problem.
Several weeks ago installed Ubuntu 9.10 on a Toshiba L15 S104.
Did standard install and update. Using Ndiswrapper and the driver
installed had the wireless working.
Then did a couple of addons from Synaptic such as the Java JRE and Adobe.
The next day the wireless no longer worked. A full re install
failed to fix the problem.
Following a suggestion I changed to Mepis 8.5 and the same
My question how to wake up the ethernet controller?

lo no wireless extensions.
eth0 no wireless extensions.

I have tried to use some of the iwconfig commands but not knowledge
able enough to go too far.
thanks in advance.
I don't know that laptop but imagine it has a hardware switch to turn on/off the wireless. Is that by any chance turned off?
I verified this AM that the wi-fi switch is in the on position.
Always good to check when not sure.
Do not know what or why this occured or what caused it
but Windows XP was reinstalled and the wireless works.
Not a linux solve but the prudent one.
Thanks all for the interest.
