    [ubuntu] Re: Enable Wireless - unchecked and greyed out

    You can do as I did on my Dell Inspiron, in terminal run "sudo rmmod -f dell-laptop". That did it for me.

    Yep, same here, 64-bit with nvidia drivers. I installed the driver manually from the nvidia site and now I'm booting to kernel 15. So, in my case, it WAS the video driver.
