Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

So, just recently my computer has not been connecting to the internet. It had been working before but it just went off one day in the middle of use.

I've gone into the network setting and made sure everything is in the correct place, with airplane mode off and wireless ticked on, but wireless ticks back off immediately.

I've tried the lshw -C network command and see that the *-network DISABLED is the wireless network, but when I use sudo ifconfig wlan1 (The logical name under said entry) up, I get the error wlan0: ERROR while getting interface flags: No such device.

I have not removed anything nor only been connected to an ethernet connection. Does anyone have a next step?

What is the output from: sudo lshw -C network and iwconfig? –  david6 Dec 2 '11 at 20:59
