    Can't enable wireless?

    I can't enable wireless on my maverick meerkat. Anyone have problems, or is it just me?? The "Enable Wireless" option is greyed out.

    My wireless has worked perfectly since I installed alpha3. Ditto wireless broadband dongles from Vodafone and T-mobile.

    May not be this, but try this:
    Code:
    cat /var/lib/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.state
    Check everything says true, if not edit the file, save and reboot.

    If you have the option try loading another kernel. On my netbook wifi is not working with 2.6.35, but if i boot it with 2.6.32 everything is ok.
