Does your lappy have internal wireless? If so, please post the model. If its a wireless USB adapter, please post the output of lsusb.

I'm just running an 8.10 live cd in my Compaq 6820s and it has installed the wireless automatically without any issues. I'm writing this on the 6820s and uploading it to the forum through the wireless link. :)

Sorry I can't help more, just to let you know that it works. If you want to see what wireless networks are available before connecting to them, left click on the network symbol on the top panel and a dropdown showing available networks appears and you can make a choice.
