Hello! Having some Ubuntu + wireless problems
Hey guys, I am new to the forums. I just picked up a used Latitude D505 from a garage sale this past weekend. However it didn't have an OS installed. I decided on trying Ubuntu 9.04 after hearing excellent reviews from friends.
The video card and sound card seem to work great without an driver modifications. However I cannot get the wireless card to work. When I click the wireless icon between the battery icon and sound icon, I see the word "disconnected" in faded gray text. Pressing the FN+F2 keys doesn't seem to toggle the wireless as it should.
I typed in "lshw -C network" in the Terminal and got the following (exact copy and paste except I changed the serials and had to post the text as a picture due to some URL/PIC blocking on the forum :?):

Anyone have a suggestion? I really want to get my wireless internet up and running.
