hello,
i have a lenovo x61 tablet, and my verizion wireless broadband has stopped working after i upgraded to 9.10. the broadband is built-in the laptop and is not an external card. the built-in card is from sierra networks.

i have tried both 32 and 64 bit versions of ubuntu 9.10 and it does not work on either of them. the card works fine on the 42 and 64 bit versions of ubuntu 9.04.

i have the same problem with fedora 11 and 12. the card works fine on fedora 11 32 and 64 bit, but not on fedora 12. (this is not a fedora forum, but i thought i would share this in case it helps in trouble shooting)

i imagine this has to do with the network manager? i looked in /var/log/messages and i see an error about card initialized, but the drive is unable to load.

thanks
