My wireless is not working properly. I just installed jolicloud pre-beta. I previously had moblin for whic the wireless worked. I am using an acer aspire one netbook model ZG5. The wireless is not showing up when I right click on the network icon next to the time. The only internet option is the wired connection. The wireless switch does not have a light. But it also does not responsive when I attempt to turn it on.

Try the switch, then reboot. I turned my wifi off, and same as u--no response from the slider button. After a reboot i had wifi again (and the light)

Edit: This was only lucky it seems.. But a cold boot will give me the wifi back (Shut down ,and leave for 30 sec without battery or powercord)

Just have to stay away from the switch.. it will shut down wifi,but not enable again
