Comment 25 for bug 567016

I did a fresh install of a Lucid .iso on a HP Compaq 610 today.
This computer contains a Realtek 8171se WiFi chip. WiFi didn't work first.
The installation .iso still contained kernel image 2.6.32-21
Downloading the file
manually on another computer with Internet Access and copying this single file using an USB-flash memory stick made it possible to upgrade the kernel on the new machine and after the reboot WiFi worked fine. I would like to thank everybody for their nice work!
