Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I've just bought a Semp Toshiba Aurex notebook IS 1817HD, Intel i5 / 4GB RAM / 2 X 750 G SATA II , Supports RAID 0 and 1 / ATI Radeon HD 5650 GPU with 2GB DDR3 RAM / Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Realtek 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet Adapter.

I formatted and installed Ubuntu 13.10 in one of the hard drives (the other I use as a partition for files), and even though the wireless worked perfectly at first, after a couple of days it stopped working. Ubuntu won't even recognize it. I've been googling for a solution, but it's no use, I haven't been able to find anything helpful that actually works.

Does anybody have any tips on this? Any help will be greatly appreciated!
