comment Ubuntu 12.04 not recognising my new wireless "super hub"
Hi John, my friend asked around some forums, and someone suggested checking the wireless channel that it was on. Apparently some laptops/netbooks will only recognise channels 1-11, and this was on channel 13! So we changed the channel to 1 and now it works! This explains why the new router changed everything, because the last router must have been set to a lower number. Thanks so much for all of your time and help John, its much appreciated mate.

hi john, this would be great. I tried the method he used, and it didnt work. Should I post the commands to you, or on this forum, will there be a lot of text? And should I use the commands in the link or wait for yours. Thanks so much for this mate, I owe you a pint :)

Thanks so much John, sorry that its taken me so long to get back to you. Yes, all of the information you have is correct. I'm pretty sure its broadband, as I dont know what national is. My friend had the same problem and he said that getting another broadcom driver helped to solve it. What do you reckon? I'm in the UK and would be happy to skype/chat at a good time for you. Many thanks for all your help and time, its really appreciated :)

its a virgin media super hub, made by netgear. Will the serial number help, or is there something else I should look out for?

i dont have a camera, what kind of information would be helpful to know? There is a lot of information. I think that its 802.11n, but the broadcom driver that I have with ubuntu says that it works for that.

Thanks so much anyway John. How would I find the difference? The serial number is 2ha31buk372a5, but it didn't help me find the model. I know its by netgear. I'll look into it, maybe I could write to virgin and ask for the model of the router.

The difference is that they are recognised and I can connect to them with no problem.

thanks John. Other networks work fine. This network I want to use doesn't show up on my list of wireless networks. The router worked fine on my 32 bit Ubuntu 10:10. I forgot to mention that this is the 64 bit ubuntu 12.04. I don't know if that makes any difference.. I did try to add the router manually, including the ssid. I wasn't sure what else to add, and this didnt make any difference.
