  7. [ubuntu] Re: intel proset/wireless 3945ABG not working, HELP

  8. [ubuntu] Re: intel proset/wireless 3945ABG not working, HELP

    You mentioned that there used to be a "wireless section" in network manager. Is it still there when you use the live CD? If so what does it say? Is it detecting any networks and maybe just not...

    I've been using the Hardy beta on my 1520 with the intel 965 and video and compiz both work by default. I don't think the 965 is blacklisted with the newer compiz and intel driver in Hardy.
