UM 3.0 - Wireless not available on HP 3125
« on: October 26, 2016, 12:39:45 PM »
I've installed 3.0 on a HP 3125.  On first run - I'm able to put in our WiFi password without issues and wireless works.  I shut down and turn back on - wireless says it's unavailable even though it's enabled.  I've run into this on two different machines.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Solved my problem.  Had to install the driver for the Ralink Wireless - From here.

Then I had to follow these steps here as my wireless didn't stick after my restart.

sudo ifconfig -a

will list all the available ehternet interfaces. Now activate your WIFI interface by:

sudo ifconfig interface-name up

here interface-name should be one listed from executing ifconfig -a command. Now restart network manager by:

sudo service network-manager restart

Restarted 3 times following just to check with success.  Rebuilding the install key right now.
