    Default BT5 gnome 64bit reboots when conecting to wifi

    ubuntu works out of the box in this pc

    PC Specs: HP p6720F , http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/d...ot_search#N461

    wifi card : Ralink 802.11 Wireless b/g/n PCI-E Mini card

    when i go to wincd network manager i can see the wireless networks , i see my home AP ok i go to configure and enter my Key then i hit connect and the pc shuts down
    any ideas on this?

    hmmm I know the x64 has a few bugs and it occasionally shut down on me not just with wifi
    the x86 runs smooth no problems weird

    run this command
    Code:
    /etc/init.d/wicd start
    you say wincd are you using wicd maybe try not to hit enter use the mouse I want to check something

    try your lan and wireless

    there may be something about the pci-e card

    Hey m8, i had kind of the same issue, my bt5 just hanged up in there. I am not using the same card as you but, i was able to correct my issue like this:

    - Head to http://wireless.kernel.org/ and download the "compat-wireless-2.6.39-rc6-1.tar.bz2"

    Code:
    tar -xf /path/to/compat-wireless-driver.tar.bz2
    cd /path/to/compat-wireless-driver-folder
    ./scripts/driver-select <driver-name>
    make
    make install
    make wlunload
    modprobe <driver>
    I hope it helps.
