    RE: wifi on 12.04 and other questions
    Hello again, As an educator, I have always believed that knowledge is not a commodity that should be bought and sold(usually at high cost), but rather something that should be shared equally so that all may benifit. That is what got me into open source and Linux. In that same spirit, I pass on the link to my attempts to find a solution to my problem, with the help and support of the wonderful people in Launchpad. That way, everyone can follow and learn along with me. ( The brain is a muscle, and like all muscles must be exercised... or else it becomes weak and lazy.) Fortunately, open source and Linux... allows me to exercise mine. (https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+question/229010) Sincerely,

    RE: wifi on 12.04 and other questions
    Hello again, So far tried removing everything except the wifi client, nothing there. Then just removed and reinstalled wifi client, nothing. Finally reinstalled whole OS, nothing. Even tried creating new account, changing frequencies, running a diagnostic test of modem. As far as trying usb again... everytime it says that there is not enough space. Even though it is empty. Maybe, I'll just buy a larger one, they're cheap enough.(Mine is old) It could just be too much interference... it has happened before. But it solved itself,after a while. I'm in Greece.... we have this problem with infrastructure. The government hasn't done much to improve ISP service, which results in wired and wireless problems.. since practically everybody has some wireless device... they're quite affordable. That however is an economic/ political problem. Thanks anyways for all the help. Will let you know if I do find a solution. For now, will use ethernet... like my son suggests anyways. Sincerly,

    RE: wifi on 12.04 and other questions
    Hi Izzy, Thanks for replying. As far as I know, Ubuntu worked fine on Unity from the beginning. The modem that I am using is a wireless adsl2+ T&W matr-X 4ew, at least that is what it says on the manual. Other than Wifi Radar, I also use Windows wireless drivers and Broadcam STA wireless driver. I updated them when reinstalling 12.04. The whole problem started about 2 weeks ago, when spring break began. Then I begaan getting different signals on my wifi. There are many hot spots here, and almost everybody has an iphone or ipad. Also, in an attempt to upgrade to 13.04 everything crashed because wubi isn't supported by 13.04 and I had to reinstall again on wubi. I'd like to try 13.04 first from a usb stick, but mine is too small and I'm looking for one compatable with linux that I can use for this. I have tried various tweeks that I have read on different forums. Nothing works. If it helps... my laptop is a Samsung RF711. It has NVIDA Optimus , intel core i5. originally with windows 7. (here the problem started ) which is why I want to make a clean install. I can't understand why wifi works with Windows and not with Ubuntu. Especially since it worked before. I hope that this is enough information. Sincerely,

    wifi on 12.04 and other questions
    Hi, I have been using 12.04 happily since installing it. After a crash recently (from wubi) I reinstalled it with a usb stick. All works fine but suddenly, I can't use wifi. It recognizes the signal and shows that it is strong. But Wifi Radar also shows other signals. It just won't connect. On Windows 7, however(which I also have for emergencies), all is well. Is this an OS issue, am I missing something... that I also need to reinstall? Any commands that I could use? Or is it just that there is too much interference? (If so, why does it work with Windows?) Is there any way I could block these signals? Also, I'd like to know which usb sticks are compatable with linux, and how many GB's are needed. I tried to load 13.04 on mine, 4GB and it wasn't eneough. I know that these might sound like silly questions to those who are more experienced, but I would greatly appreciate any help. (My 60 yr. old brain is slow in learning ) Sincerely,
