Wifi lost during updates


downloaded the updates ok

in the middle of the updating/configuration, the 'wireless network disappeared' and the update configuration page stopped.
[I am back in Windows right now]

I could not re-connect to the internet but maybe i was doing something wrong...

When the configuration page stopped [don't remember exactly what the page was called] one line said something about something 'removed' re internet, i thhk, and at bottom of the list was 'wireless network disappeared'

and could not continue installing updates.


just installed mepis 8.5 and was doing updates...worked fine till then

Can you run lsmod as root in the Terminal and give me the output?

Also please run lspci in the Terminal as root and post the output of that?

You can run the commands like this:

lsmod > lsmod.txt
lspci > lspci.txt


And copy those text files to a USB drive so you can have them in Windows. Since you're dual booting.

Also I would like to see the output of the following commands:
ifconfig
iwconfig


Just might as well get that out of the way since I may ask you anyway. That way you don't have to reboot between your dual boot too many times.
