hey, so I have an old (by present standards) netbook, specifically Samsung N145 Plus I've got Hare's version of Trinity Desktop on it; having some trouble getting wifi to work. I get the old 'no wireless extensions' problem. I've got wireless-tools installed and firmware-wifi; backports for squeeze set up in sources.list. if I do "sudo /sbin/modprobe iwlagn" the driver seems to load and dmesg tells me stuff about khz and antenna gain, etc. still nothing shows in iwconfig or wicd. wifi works on this machine: opensuse, netrunner, some other stuff, catches it easily. I wonder if this is a kernel issue? it's got 2.6.32-5-686. suggestions welcome. (the wireless hardware is identified as centrino wireless-n 100).
