Wireless???? Help!
December 02, 2008 02:34AM
Well, everything was going along great.... then I did an update through Synaptic last night and now I no longer have ATH0 in my Network Configuration panel....only ETH0. I had both before the update.

I have *ONLY* wireless access on my laptop and now can't connect. How in the world do I get ATH0 back!?!?
:(

Thanks!
El

Oh, wow. No internet access at all? If you have a different computer with Debian based Linux on it, you can get a package from Synaptic that'll let you install packages from another computer on the one without internet. If you get the kernel headers that way, you can compile new drivers for your wireless card. Once they're loaded, you'll have your wifi back.

We do need to know more first though. What hardware are you using?

I am having a similar issue. I just donated and installed Gem 1. I am interested in teh 1.9 unstable, but do not know how to upgrade to it, and on the live cd the WIFI worked. My wifi card is

Dell Wireless 1490 = Broadcom B43 I believe

Can anyone assist me with either of these issues?
Thanks in advance

Ok, I am aware of that, but how do I perform an upgrade? In any case, I have downloaded the unstable 1.9 and ran it off of the live CD, but it has no installation options. (At least that's why I made the donation). I have high hopes for this distro. Any thoughts?
