Question My Wi-Fi problem with UDEVD-Work problem as well.


I'm new to Ubuntu 10.10 and understand the basic thanks to the book I bought. So if you can help and explain how to fix my two problems please remember to go easy, be patient and easy on me. Thanks.

First problem: UDEVD-WORK[311,325,315,309] errors I constantly get. Saying the file doesn't exit and what not.

Second Problem: While using my wi-fi connection it suddenly stopped working and no matter what I have tried it does not connect. It also no longer sees the router. It says "device not ready". When installed Ubuntu 10.10 the very first time it saw my wi-fi card and I was able to use it without any problems. When it lost connection, even if I re-install the OS, it doesn't ever work. My Ethernet connection works great.

Ubuntu has 3rd party drivers available to you. It's under "System>Preferences>........
I can't recall the last part but just scroll thru "System>Preferences>........
