What the heck is with Intrepid Ibex? How do I add a wireless connection? It doesn't even allow me to add a wireless connection? I had been having problems with my wireless card in Heron, and heard that Ibex handled the Broadcom chipset better, so I upgraded. Now the Networking app is so different I can't even get it to add a connection for wireless.

I ran 'lshw' and that said that "network:0 DISABLED" for the wireless interface with logical name "wlan0." It does identify the wireless nic as a BCM4306 802.11b/g Wireless LAN Controller. Why is it disabled, and how do I enable it? Help!
