    Re: Wireless wont work.

    May I assume this is, indeed, a PCMCIA card? One of those separate cards you can slide in a slot on the side of a laptop? If so, please sudo gedit /etc/pcmcia/config.opts and add a new line:
    Code:
    exclude irq 3
    Save and close gedit. Reboot without the wire and do:
    Code:
    sudo iwconfig eth1 essid <your_essid>
    sudo dhclient eth1
    Do you connect?

    Hi its not a PCMCIA card its a built in Intel wirless card. Should have said. I have tred connecting with that link again but still no luck. im now getting Network Monitor poping up in my notifications area with a error:

    Could not find information on interface 'eth1:avahi' in /proc/net/dev

    Any more of your suggestions would be great...Is there a way i can totaly reset everything and start from scratch or is that not a good idea...?

    AznPat please post the output of
    Code:
    lspci
    in a terminal.

    adden93, could you post the output of iwconfig again?
    When you use Network Manager, does it see wireless networks? Can it connect?
    If I'm not being clear enough or giving you enough information, just ask
