    10.04, Intel 5100 Wifi card, Dell Mini 10v

    Hi,
    Having had a working Broadcom wifi card I decided to replace it with an Intel 5100 thinking it would improve the reception and generally poor performance in finding and logging on to wireless connections.
    However after installing the card and doing a clean system 10.04 install I can't get wireless working.
    Tried replacing networkmanager with wicd with no success and have reverted back to networkmanager.

    Here's some details, which look similar to some other posts but none of which seem to solve my problem.

    Just in case here the output for

    Hopefully someone may have some input as to why this card is not enabled/working.

    Thanks

    Looking through some of the output above noticed the following...

    dmesg

    Any idea if this is the problem and what does it mean?

    Thanks

    Thanks.
    The suggestion is that this particular card is of "dubious" origin!
