I have spent the past two days trying to figure out why the wireless on my asus ul30vt is not working. Perhaps my completely uninstalling windows has something to do with it?

Here are results of my diagnostics. Thanks for all help, If I don't resolve this issue I am practically tied to my cable box.

Updating the kernel fix my issues with Network drivers, you can try that. –  Uri Herrera Dec 10 '11 at 4:41
    
Hi Uri, I already have the latest kernel in my system. –  TimothyA Dec 12 '11 at 18:22
    
3.0.0xx it's not the latest available, 3.2 rc5 is. –  Uri Herrera Dec 12 '11 at 18:56

"Intel Ultimate N WiFi Link 5300" should work out of the box nowadays. –  gertvdijk Dec 29 '12 at 16:58
