Well, it turns out that the error messages are wrong. Can someone please offer so much desired help? Jul 6, I recently installed Ubuntu Netbook Remix on my Dell Inspiron Mini 10, and for some reason it isn’t detecting any wireless networks. I tried the “disswrapping” app. OK, I’ll do just that. Everything was working great and I had wireless up and running. I hope this works for someone if they have the same problem I did.
