Lost Wireless Icon.
« on: November 04, 2016, 02:27:51 pm »
I just installed Peppermint 7 on a Acer Inspire One Cloudbook. After connecting with my wireless router. My Wireless icon disappeared. I am still connected to WiFi no problem. But, how do I get the icon back?

was it replaced by anything (wired icon) or just disappeared ?

On a macro level, it looks like your wifi is not active anymore.  I would check the device to see if it is functioning and if it is then check to see the status of the firmware driver that runs it.  I would even go and inspect the permissions on your wireless firmware driver to see if it has enough permissions to run.

the inxi output seems to suggest wireless IS working

So I'm wondering if it's just the tray icon that's missing (or just displaying the wired icon instead).
