Thanks for the quick reply however!
I went to your link and it says:
"STOP PRESS: As of the update providing kernel 2.6.32-22 Wifi appears to work out of the box, thus rendering this article redundant."

My problem started recently. I did notice the problem with the wi-fi and I believe it to be fixed with the above mentioned update. I'll try the fix just to be sure over the weekend unless anyone here thinks it to be redundant.

Again thank y'all
