Hey guys, put your newbie-tolerance helmets on:
After installing Ubuntu 11.04 Natty on my lenovo s12, my broadcom bcm4312 wireless adapter doesn't work anymore, even when I load from windows 7!
How could this be? did it physically change something in my adapter config? Can I reset to factory setting?
Gory details: Installed 11.04 on second partition (dual boot mode), got "wireless is disabled by hardware switch", tried several other drivers (b43, ndiswrapper) to no avail, cursed, got back to my windows7, and wireless doesn't work there as well - got a red X on it, even when I jiggle the wifi on/off switch several times, restart, removed and re-installed the windows drivers, windows network diagnostics says: "radio is off" and its on on on! ran out of ideas, wept.
Pointers would be appreciated... what should I be looking for? Broadcom/Lenovo utils for hard resetting?
