    Here is the readout from sudo lshw -C network if it will help troubleshoot my problem.

    Just curious but why not use the Intel 2915 a/b/g card? lspci picks it up, and Intel has great free drivers.

    For the other problem, have you put in your wpa key so that it can authenticate? It is even picking up your WAP without you typing it in? What type of encryption are you using? Are you using NetworkManager? or the "Network" tool in debian/ubuntu? If the "Network" tool, then it doesn't support wpa that I am aware of, but I would suggest just using NetworkManager because it is easier and wpa "just works".

    With this information, we could possibly help.

    For reference, I am using a D-Link Wireless PCI Card in one of my computers with the Atheros chipset. I don't think it is the same chipset, but it is Atheros none-the-less.

    Not using any encryption what so ever or passwords for router. I didn't know I could connect to my router without the dlink card. Do you got any step by step suggestions to get this working for a biker that is learning linux as he goes. I will unplug the pcmcia card if an internal pci card will do the job. Just tell me how to unplug it withught shutting down laptop because that is how I would normally do it.

    It looks to me like the Intel 2915 card is the internal wireless card, and it supported in kernel and recognized as eth1.

    If the other wireless card is pcmcia you can just unplug it without rebooting, it won't hurt it. Just pull it out.

    Setting up the 2915 should be straightforward if you aren't using encryption.

    I will look for a how-to for you, I am sure there is one. At most you will just need firmware for the card to work.

    OK just got it back after reboot.. My big fingers and inexperianced technical knowledge probably snafu'd it. Its working now.

    I believe you, lol. I never much liked ubuntu or gnome, but am learning more as I help more people fix it, hahaha.

    I use ubuntu on my garage computer anyway, but that doesn't mean I enjoy it. I do run KDE on it though.

    Now, back to the wireless issue. Any luck pulling the dlink and only using the Intel? Do you have any internet access on the laptop?
