comment How to stop constantly blinking Wifi LED?
+1 for the tape suggestion. Black electrical tape solved the issue for me on a Lenovo T61.

Thinking more about it, the screen does seem to be referring to a single key: toggle on multiply/divide key is singular.

comment What is the “multiply/divide key” mentioned by the Ubuntu installer?
Well, that's what I wondered too, but the asterisk and slash keys of course just print asterisks and slashes. It wouldn't make sense to assign a hotkey to such commonly used keys, so perhaps it requires modifiers. I've tried using different modifiers, and combinations of modifiers. I'm wondering if there is perhaps a special multiply/divide key on extended keyboards (I'm on a laptop, and don't even own an extended keyboard). The installer never asked me which layouts to toggle between, so should I expect to see a text-based pop-up prompting me to select between all the English layouts?
