I upgraded my machine to 13.04 this morning, and now it won't connect to my Wifi. Here's the history:

I installed Ubuntu on my Windows machine using Wubi back in Version 11.10. The Wifi didn't work then, either, but there was a little hack to fix it:

modprobe -r iwlagn
modprobe iwlagn bt_coex_active=0

And since then I just ran that at every startup, and the wifi would connect without any issue. Now when I run it, I get this message:

FATAL: Module iwlagn not found.
FATAL: Module iwlagn not found.

Anyone know what I need to do to fix this?

The intel wireless driver module appears to have been renamed. Try replacing iwlagn with iwlwifi like so:

modprobe -r iwlwifi
modprobe iwlwifi bt_coex_active=0

Hey Jorge. Thanks for the tip. I tried, but it's a no-go. – AABoyles Apr 26 '13 at 15:56
