Have Ubuntu 8.04 and wireless was working fine D-link DWL G-630 PCMCIA card.

After doing the updates my wireless card no longer works. The wireless connection tab gives me the option of manual connection only but isn't locating the router like it did last night.

The laptop is an older Dell Inspiron LS but there is nothing wrong with it.

Thinking about wiping the HD and reinstalling since I have nothing on there in the first place unless someone has a solution to fix this.

Can you post the outputs of <ifconfig> and <iwconfig>.

Being the ultimate ubuntu ROOKIE...where do I find that info?

Open a terminal Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal and type "ifconfig" and "iwconfig" without the quotes.
