Just installed 9.10 on a dell d620 laptop and unlike the last few times I successfully installed it on similar laptops the wireless icon on the top taskbar doesn't recognise any networks.

Could it be the driver on the wireless device is not recognised or maybe an error on the installation?

Absolutely! (probably the first, esp. with 9.10). :) Can you run the following terminal commands and paste the results here so that we can see the status of your hardware?


lspci

lsmod

lsusb

cat /etc/modules

cat /etc/modules.conf

sudo lshw -C network

ifconfig

iwconfig

sudo iwlist scan

nm-tool
