Hi.
I have tried about 5 different linux distros and I like ubuntu the best. I really love linux! It's much better than windows. The only things holding me form switching to ubuntu is that the wireless intenett thing don't work and i tried several different drivers. I also don't get my printer to work neither. I am also worried that my Logitech G15 keyboard wont have the G-keys working.

My specs are:
Dell XPS M1710
Dual monitor 17" widescreen and 15" widescreen.
2.00 Ghz Intel Centiro Duo Processor
2Gb memory
Integrated Dell Bluetooth chip
Logitech G15 Keyboard
Logitech G5 Mouse
Saitek joypad
Saitek Wireless Cyborg Joystick
500 Gb External harddrive
120 Gb internal harddrive
Windows Vista Ultimate Edition
Lexmark X3470 Printer
Integrated Broadcom Wireless chip
Philips Web camera

hi,

search for 3945ABG (or wifi card) with madwifi or ndiswrapper (and ubuntu naturally), you'll probably find how make it work.
