    Default HP Pavilion DV5 wireless configuration problem.

    Hi there. First of all i wanted to say that i was searching for any tips before posting this, but nothing helped me.

    So, i have my HP Pavilion DV5 with its standard wireless card and i cant turn it on.

    I was trying commands from here:
    Code:
    wirelessdefence.org/Contents/LinuxWirelessCommands
    but none of them helped.

    iwconfig says:
    Code:
    lo          no wireless extensions
    eth0        no wireless extensions
    I was searching also in tutorials on this forum and other users posts but it really didnt help!

    I had same problem on my other computer (Acer Aspire). The only thing i can make is putting my shitty USB WiFi Card (AND IT WORKS!) which have been given to me as"free extra bonus" for some pc shit.

    Thank You

    click the wifi button on your laptop once. then open a shell and type:
    Code:
    ifconfig wlan0 up
    after that type
    Code:
    ifconfig
    to see if the wlan is really up. i'm guessing you are using the usb live right?
