1. On the front right of the unit is a slide switch to turn off and on the wifi. Try it.
2. I do not have Linpus installed so I can't comment exactly.
3. Reading http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linpus_Linux I find links to this OS's home page. Maybe some support groups?
4. If I made my restore media I might try http://manurevah.com/blah/en/linux/kubuntu-aspire-one.php next time.
-> The lesson about Linux based laptops is to keep your files backed up as support is going to be a little light.
you see we have a notebook thats linux, acer aspire one, color white intel atom...... I have a problem with the network. Our lower tool bar disappeared(contains the shut down/restart buttons, network button, battery info, etc) and whenever i click the icon of netwrk in the settings nothing happens. it does not hung or anything. but it does not connct to the net. i tried to use wifi and cable and still nothing happend. and there's this small toolbar which i could drag anywhere. it has a sun like/ star like symbol and nothing happens whenever i click it. when i hover, there's this note saying "new item.. not yet configured".
i've not yet installed any programs/softwares. what happened was when i turned it off then on, i cant access the net from then on.
so, please help me to fix this.
BEFORE, ive installed something and some prob happened... so i think they boot it then everything went normal..,, it was the first prob and was fixed... then we used the nbook..,, used it , used it,, and its still fine until the day the sunlike/star like symbol in the middle of a toolbar like appeared...,,
PLEASE TELL ME HOW I CAN I FIX IT..,, MY LAST CHOICE IS TO BOOT IT MYSELF(if that is what it is called...) to reset everything back to its factory somthing format..,,
