I have a dell XPS 15 running windows 7, I recently installed ubuntu 10.10. The Ubuntu OS detects my Bluetooth card but not my wireless internet card.
Initially I could browse the internet through a wired internet connection but after a recent update even that has stopped working. During boot up I logged on to a previous generic release and thats how I'm able to access wired internet connections now but wireless is still out.
Any idea how I can get back wireless and wired connections to work on the latest release?
I tried installing a synaptic package for the wireless cards through synaptic manager, some linux kernel files were installed. Ever since then I have not been able to connect to the internet. It was on release-28.
I currently log into the release-27 in the GRUB bootloader to use the net.
I´m pretty new to linux so the details that I provide as such maybe incomplete.
