you may suffer from bug #677633, ACPI related – Takkat Mar 10 '11 at 7:37
moata_u, I have the same problem. I booted from USB, so USB isn't the problem. I've read other reports of people having the same problem with other netbooks. I'm using Ubuntu 10.10 Netbook on a Lenovo S10-3C. Other reports: Asus EeePC 1015P with Ubuntu 10.10 Netbook Remix Ubuntu 10.10, laptop not specified… Edit I've exchanged the S10-3c for an S10-3s. The keyboard works but this on model I can't get any ethernet or wireless connectivity. :/ – user12226 Mar 12 '11 at 6:20
