Hi All,

Im fairly new to Linux (been using it about 3 months). I have a couple of Ubuntu machines (both KDE and Command line for servers) so I am fairly familiar with things.

I have just set up a Mythbuntu machine to use as a network media player, however the problem I am having is with getting the Wireless card to work. (or Mythbuntu to see it at all!)

If I run IWconfig, everything looks correct, but if I manually set the settings for my network it does not connect and Network Manager cannot do anything with it.

I fully un-installed and then re-installed Network Manager and now I just get

Wired Network (greyed out)
Device is unmanaged

Wireless Network (greyed out)
Device is Unmanaged

Can anyone help please??
