Thread: problem with wireless networking

  1. #1

    problem with wireless networking

    my laptop on knoppix on wifi was fine up till this morning, but then it lost connection, and I couldn't see my wireless router listed.

    I checked on my phone and it is there.

    I clicked around on the taskbar and saw an option to disable/enable it, I thought that might help, though now it doesn't list any at all and I can't see what I clicked there.

    I have clicked "enable networking", but it's not showing any wireless networks.

    Do you still have no wireless network after reboot of Knoppix?

    Yep, still not showing any. It's not even showing the wireless adaptor. I think it may possibly be a hardware issue, it's a laptop so if I want to fix it i'll have to open it and that's a project. so i'll have to leave opening it up for now
    thanks

    Check your function keys.
    On a laptop, one of your function keys toggles wifi off and on.
