Hello:

Thanks for the welcome!
Ultimate Edition is great so far - It will be my "if you used to use Windows - try Ultimate Edition" when people ask me ablut linux.

I do not have anything asus-laptop except:
locate asus-laptop
/lib/modules/2.6.31-14-generic/kernel/drivers/platform/x86/asus-laptop.ko
/lib/modules/2.6.31-15-generic/kernel/drivers/platform/x86/asus-laptop.ko
/lib/modules/2.6.31-20-generic/kernel/drivers/platform/x86/asus-laptop.ko

I did not mention: This is a HP Pavilion dm3-1039wm 13" Laptop

Postby w8wca » Wed Mar 10, 2010 8:36 pm

No, I am not using ndiswrapper

I can go that route If I can't get this going

It is just I did not use it in Ubuntu 9.10 on this same laptop

i have been connected for 25 minutes now.

but signal looks weak

w8wca

If I get you right,you do not have wire connection?
here is the package for you to install on your machine.

ndiswrapper-1.56.tar.gz
1
(196.06 KiB) Downloaded 237 times


After installing the packages make restart to your machine.
then see if you gut the fix for the card.

First off - Thanks Mate! & GN

I am connected now by wifi and I can connect by Cat 5 lan also.

OK I can try ndiswrapper, but I would need to grab windows Drivers also

Just an update: (Updated again 11 - Mar. 2010 12:26z

Thank you for the help.

I have not installed the tarball yet (Or by apt-get or synaptic)

After I ran your clean up script and re booted, I managed to stay connected over night !

I stayed on IRC overnight and did not drop, so it looks like the cleanup script fixed it.

(Maybe mixed up kernel modules? not sure, that is an area I do not know a lot about)
