Hello all,

Welcome to my world of wireless woes...

I have an inspiron 8200 with dell truemobile 1150 (orinoco?) wireless card. It seems to work at times and at other times, not at all. This problem has ocurred in Hardy and Intrepid... I haven't done much fooling around with it, so it is like magic to me whether it works or not and why... All i know for sure is that in windows, though i never use it, it is always detected, so I have (mostly) ruled out a hardware problem...

I think it is not detecting the card because it is not listed in "ifconfig" or lshw -c network. When it does detect it, it seems to work. I tried loading the windows driver with ndisgtk just now, but i get the "no matching hardware" status message.

Where to go from here?

Thanks all, peace be with you.
