[plug] Ubuntu 11.10 and wireless
autobot at iinet.net.au
Tue Feb 21 19:49:52 WST 2012
sudo apt-get install linux-firmware
worked once for me. I did it, it downloaded a 20MB package and installed,
then I restarted and the wifi came up the that time. However after
shutting down then powering on again Im back to old issue. I repeated the
above without internet and it appeared to reinstall linux-firmware but this
time it does nothing on a restart.
/lib/firmware/iwlwifi-4965-2.ucode exists ok.
Anything else I can try?
