I am currently using ubuntu 10.10. Originally, wireless was working fine right after installation, a week later (few days ago) wlan stops working, I tried reinstalling ubuntu 10.10 (then 9.04; no luck I had wlan issues in 9.04 from the day I started using it)in order to determine if it was something I had done wrong. Sure enough, the problem persists with wireless enabled from the panel, under Wireless Networks it says "Device Not Ready"
into terminal, which yields:
lo no wireless extensions.
eth0 no wireless extensions.
wlan0 IEEE 802.11bg ESSID: off/any
Mode:Managed Access Point: Not-Associated
Retry long limit:7 RTS thr: off Fragment thr: off
Power Management: off
If any additional info is needed, just ask. Thank you in advance for your help.
