I installed Mepis 6.5.02 on my Dell Inspiron 1721 last week. I gave Vista the boot and Mepis installed real easy and connected to my Linksys router w/no issues. Today, I downloaded Kubuntu 7.10 and tried to set it up to dual boot. I ran into some problems and finally threw my hands up and just installed it over Mepis. I couldn't get connected to the wireless router. Then I tried Mepis again and was able to dual boot both Kubuntu and mepis (happy days!), however, now I can't connect to the wireless on Mepis. Right now I am connected wired into the access point.

I ran you scripts and here is what I saw....
