I just changed out the Broadcom wireless card in my Dell Mini 9 for the Intel 4965. I expected it to go smoothly because I was under the impression that this card worked with Ubuntu 9.10 out-of-the-box, and I'm still not quite sure if that impression was correct. I uninstalled the Broadcom drivers after booting up with the Intel card and after noticing that my Intel card wasn't being picked up, I reinstalled network manager. I also tried
which returned nothing and didn't change the problem. I decided to try booting from my live stick, and it worked! The card was recognized and performed beautifully. So, I decided to just go ahead and reinstall Ubuntu (just my "/" partition), and again, the card worked. After rebooting, the card was not seen again...I went ahead and did a full os reinstall and it still isn't seen...I've searched high and low but haven't found anything yet that has worked for me. I'm pretty new to Linux, so please bear with me. I hope someone can help me figure this out soon! Thanks! Other info:

So I suppose the problem lies within the fact that the Network is Unclaimed...
