Caroline >>> For me! And I'm very grateful for all the interest shown
by friends on this list. I hadn't had much response to a couple of wifi
questions, and I began to wonder whether the idea that Ubuntu was great
on the desktop should be taken literally: widely used on desktops; not
much on laptops. And I was also aware of the many and various issues
people on forums have always had with wifi: not just with drivers for
interfaces, but with getting encryption to work, and hiding ESSIDs
Anyway, I hope everyone has been interested to see that about twenty
five of us reported having wifi operational (some on desktops; many on
laptops). And most people have their wifi encrypted - either WEP or WPA
- with pretty much everyone broadcasting the ESSID.
Twenty five. What proportion of the whole membership is that, Al?
About 20% (guessing)?
Anyway, thanks again, everyone, for bothering to reply!
