    Question Wireless problem

    Hi.
    I have tried about 5 different linux distros and I like ubuntu the best. I really love linux! It's much better than windows. The only things holding me form switching to ubuntu is that the wireless intenett thing don't work and i tried several different drivers. I also don't get my printer to work neither. I am also worried that my Logitech G15 keyboard wont have the G-keys working.

    My specs are:
    Dell XPS M1710
    Dual monitor 17" widescreen and 15" widescreen.
    2.00 Ghz Intel Centiro Duo Processor
    2Gb memory
    Integrated Dell Bluetooth chip
    Logitech G15 Keyboard
    Logitech G5 Mouse
    Saitek joypad
    Saitek Wireless Cyborg Joystick
    500 Gb External harddrive
    120 Gb internal harddrive
    Windows Vista Ultimate Edition
    Lexmark X3470 Printer
    Integrated Broadcom Wireless chip
    Philips Web camera
