Wireless no longer working after upgrade to Ubuntu's Precise Pangolin. I've got just enough knowledge to be confused. Please explain what to do like I'm 5 years old.
seems to explain the problem and what to do (wireless suddenly stopped working and tries and tries to connect, would ask over and over for my password).
I did manage to download and install Wicd as a network manager. Now I guess I am supposed to disable NetworkManager and enable Wicd, but I don't know how to do that.
(I did finally find a terminal window and typed this into it, on the advice of some page I can't find again now, but I'm pretty sure I was in the wrong directory, because even though I restarted it didn't do anything.)
# settings NetworkManager disable
# settings wicd enable
Help. I don't really care to learn a whole bunch about the inner workings here, I just want my wireless to work. I only put Ubuntu on this netbook because it was so slow as to be unusable with Windows. And now that the whole interface has changed with this update, I had a hard time even figuring out how to get to Terminal.
