I recently purchased a new HP Mini.  Love the form factor, as does Stef.  It’s great for checking e-mail, web surfing, etc in the living room while watching TV.

First thing I did was drop Windows in favor of Linux.  In this case, Ubuntu.  I found that everything worked flawlessly except I couldn’t SSH out.  After searching around a bit, I found the solution, which I’ll post here in hopes that it saves others some time.

In /etc/network/if-pre-up.d/wireless-tools , add the following line at the end of the file:

/sbin/iwpriv eth1 set_vlanmode 0

And restart networking.  You should now be able to SSH in/out of the HP Mini.
