Hi all, I just got myself a Dell Inspiron 1440. And decided to install my favorite distro Debian. I got the installation to go with no issue and all seems to be working fine. However the wireless isn't working. NetworkManager doesnt even detect a wireless card.
I have XFCE Debian on an old PowerPC PowerBook G4. When I go to open Synaptic Package Manager, a window pops up asking for my administrative password. I enter the password I normally use for sudo in Terminal, but it doesn't work. I enter nothing, but it doesn't work. I try various other ones - like 'debian', 'synaptic' and 'password', but that doesn't work either. Why doesn't it work?
I did a full install of 9.10 on my Dell Inspirion 1200 laptop & use a Dell 1350 card, after several posts and replies I went to http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Dr...wn_PCI_devices and followed the instructions for Ubuntu/Debian. This is the result I get....
