[xubuntu] Wireless Not Working

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Dear All, I made a fresh xubuntu 9.10 installation on my laptop (amilo pa 3553 fujitsu-siemens,amd64 architecture). The problem is that the network manager applet does not allow me to enable wireless. I have always had problems with my own wireless card, but I have also tried 2 usb wireless sticks: Belkin Wireless-G USB Adapter and D-link DWL-G122 (allegedly linux-friendly). They both used to work under Debian, but also there (at least on Debian testing) they are broken now. Maybe a kernel issue...however, not having wireless connections on a laptop is pretty annoying. Any suggestions are welcome. Cheers larry (HowTos)
