How can that be? An internet search revealed that in cases like these,
people are usually reminded to flip the wifi activation switch in their
laptops ;-) But I am using a traditional box with a PCI wifi card, so I
really wonder where the problem might be. Any ideas?
Thanks in advance,
I installed a wifi card using ndiswrapper, I needed to run "modprobe
ndiswrapper" to get the card working. If this is your fix, you can add
ndiswrapper to /etc/modules
