Hello I have just installed Ubuntu 12.10, and after looking around the internet for several hours, I have found many similar questions. but no definite answers.
I am new to linux and I am using an HP dv3 laptop, and the problem is that the wireless internet connection continues to reset and never actually connects. Furthermore when I activate the wireless internet button, it automatically disables the internet on my Mac computer aswell. Then when I disable the button once again on the laptop, the internet on the rest of the computers in the house work again.
Connecting the internet wire directly to the laptop does not work, and I have not managed to attain an actual connection to the internet at all despite it having said it is connected off and on.
I will also need to figure out how to move information from laptop to this forum in order to answer tech questions, because Mac can't read the text editor.
Two stats from
02:00.0network controller: intel corporation pro/wireless 5100 agn [shiloh] network connection 03:00.0 ethernet controller: realtek semiconductor co., ltd RTL810E/Rtl8102E PCI express fast ethernet controller 9rev02)
And finally on the bottom of the laptop it is a dv3-2154ca.
