    Wireless in earlier kernel but not later one!

    I have two kernels on my ubuntu hardy. The earlier kernel's wireless works just fine. The later one which i installed from updates has no wireless. Tried to search the forums for a HOW TO or something but nothing.

    benon@benon-laptop:~$ sudo lshw
    [sudo] password for benon:
    benon-laptop

    benon@benon-laptop:~$ lsb_release -d
    Description: Ubuntu 8.04.2

    benon@benon-laptop:~$ uname -mr
    2.6.24-19-generic i686
    This is the earlier kernel that accesses wireless.

    The newer one that doesn't access wireless is 2.6.24-23-generic i686
    Any suggestions appreciated.

    What is your "lspci" output?
