    We need to find out if the card is actually working or if it's the IPV6 setting in Firefox. What happens if you start Synaptic Package Manager? If you click on the reload button, does it find the repositories and give you a report on packages that are available for updating?
    What if you open Firefox and click on the Ubuntu Quick Link in the toolbar? Does it connect there?

    What I'm getting at is this - is your wireless card not working at all? Is it failing to get you online in any way shape or form? Considering all the hassles with wireless that's my assumption. Or is it just a setting or two that we need to tweak?

    have you gone to the Ubuntu Forums Wiki and looked up the Wireless How-to's?
