Wireless for Aspire 5735Z will not engage

Asked by nowheels on 2008-12-25

I got an Aspire 5735Z as an early xmas present. Like a lot of people I was looking for a basic laptop that I could put Linux on and it works just fine with the exception of the wireless card. I have not had this problem with other laptops... just this one. Loading Ubuntu 8.10 works well except for the internal wireless. It registers the networks, but does not connect to them. I just get back an message saying ' No longer connected' . i'm not sure really how to about fixing this one?

Thanks for the help.
