    I can't set up a wireless network!

    I just installed Ubuntu 8.04 on my Dell XPS 1530 that has a Dell Wireless 1395 802.11g Mini Card. My wireless router is a Linksys WRT54G.

    Please help me enable wireless internet!

    Do you still have Vista or XP installed on this laptop?

    OK. Go to the Dell website and download the XP driver package for your card. You can then try to install the driver in Vista. (Don't worry, you're just using Vista to extract the files you need. Vista should tell you, after it tries to install the drivers, that the installation failed.) Pay attention to where Vista extracts the files. Then go to that directory and copy the .inf & .sys files for your card.
    Then follow these directions.

    Wicd tells me "no wireless networks found."
    I'm worried I may have done something wrong.
