    Don't thread hijack again, and I would suggest that you don't put your email address in a post here unless you like spam. In addition, its rude to request replies by private email from a public forum.
    Capitalisation is important. It's the difference between "Helping your brother Jack off a horse" and "Helping your brother jack off a horse".

    First off, no I will not privately email you because its not worth the effort.

    Now, onto your case.. You haven't posted any relevant information apart from the brand name of your laptop and the model number.

    What I am asking for are the information about the wireless chipset. So now the question is, where is your lspci output? where is your dmesg output?
