I installed 9.04 without a problem on Averatec 3280 (Microsoft will not replace XP disk without copy of a 7 year old receipt of purchase and also Linux is kinder to these non-dual processor machines).
I really want this to work. I understand that I need to manually press the wireless button and then add the new network connection. The trouble is that the add new network menu options will not highlight so that I can:
- activate wireless from the first pull down menu; and
- use "Apply" to actually add my new wireless port.
Very frustrating. I cannot make heads or tails of the Averatec Ubuntu online discussions.
What version of Ubuntu do I now need to fix this and use wireless?
There still are Averatecs out there -- this was a 1000$ machine just 7 yrs ago. I replaced the hard drive.
