This problem is driving me crazy, any help would be greatly appreciated
2 months ago i set this wireless up using my home network which uses WEP 40-128 bit key, 5 digit password, WEP index of 1 and an authentication of Shared
Everything has worked fine except I could never get the Fn + "2" disable feature working, it did nothing and did seem to affect the wireless network.
Last week I went to a friends house in the UK, connected to his wireless network after entering his password which worked fine.
When I returned home my machine would not connect to my home internet. I have deleted and reloaded all the wireless settings and the drivers to no avail. The wireless icon just keeps flashing and never connects.
I have another laptop using the same wireless settings on Mint 9 which is still working.
I am beginning to think I have developed a hardware fault, perhaps with the wireless card during transit??
This mini 9 works ok direct from the wired internet, only the wireless is duff.
