Hi all, I am a newbie but have followed this site for some time and I always seem to find an answer to what seems like a piddling problem (to me!).
I have used Hardy Heron (dual boot with Vista Premium <yuk> for some 6 months and was never able to connect to the internet, fixed or wireless. I searched and followed all the 'solutions', to no avail. However I liked the look and feel so did most of my work within it. Here (HTG) I saw Intrepid Ibex 8.10 was available. YIPEEE!!! seemless upgrade, ethernet picked up immediately and wireless asked me for wep key and well, it worked!!!!
I have had no problems navigating the new OS notwithstanding the fact I know nothing about the command structure of Linux.
Only had a few probs transferring word docs over, some went into recovery mode but nothing was lost and all recoveries were successful.
I have been converted, at last.
Thanks to all who give advice on this site and the patience you obviously show!!
