in short : installed 9.10 on a dell inspiron 600m which has a broadcom bcm4401 ethernet and an intel PRO/Wireless LAN 2100 3B mini PCI. At this point, i'm not too picky about which one works (meaning neither of them currently work). nm-tool seems to pick up on both :
the broadcom (eth0) is using the b44 driver, State is unavailable;
the intel (eth1) is using the ipw2100 driver, it's State is disconnected.

i have encryption turned off, and the wireless sees a number of AP's (including mine).

help.

i'm jumping off the good ship m$ and determined to make this work!!!

thanks.

Laptops are always tricky... What are results of sudo lshw -C network? (guess I haven't used nm-tool before...)
