I just got a new laptop, an Asus ultrabook, and installed 12.10 on it. The installation went smoothly with no errors.
The one issue is that wifi is not enabled by default when I boot. I have to manually enable it after logging in by clicking on the icon in the Gnome panel and selecting "Enable wireless".
Also, if ever the laptop goes into suspend mode, when it comes back, the wifi is disconnected.
After a search on the web, it seems that the problem should be solved by editing the connections, and ensuring that for every wireless connection the "Connect automatically" and "Available to all users" checkboxes are checked. I have done this, but it has not changed anything.
I would like the wifi to always be connected by default, when booting or any other time. How can I get this to happen?
To be clear, I am connecting to a wireless LAN connection, sometimes on my home connection, and sometimes at a hotspot. This is not a 3G or cellular service connection.
