Default Dell Latitude D630 Wireless

might make sense. I have firewire on this machine.

The iwl3945.ko kernel module exists in all of my installed kernels
(both the stock Ubuntu and custom 2.6.39). Not sure what to say
there. Maybe you needed the firmware blob
"/lib/firmware/iwlwifi-3945-2.ucode"?

Nah, Wcid wasn't the solution, it was the backports installation. That put
in a bunch of no-longer-included kernel modules. (depreciated?)

wicd is just a software layer that manages various connections. The
hardware itself is still supported by the kernel and is not going
anywhere anytime soon. I am not sure what the problem was, but if
wicd works for you then great.

cfg80211 167809 3 iwl3945,iwlcore,mac80211

This does have the hardware switch.

I resolved the problem by installing backports and Wicd. Interesing.
They
must have phased out the support for the Intel WIFI I have.

Now to get the cell working.....

OK, that is weird since I have not had problems with the Intel wifi
for years now. Does your Latitude have a hardware switch that turns
off your wifi? I know my current Latitude E6400 does as does the D830
I had before.

What modules are loaded? "lsmod |grep 80211", is there an interface?
"sudo iwconfig"

For me the Intel wifi devices have just worked.

Hi!

I'm a pretty smart guy, but I can't seem to get wireless working on my
Dell Latitude D630. Anyone have an idea to try or a HowTo to point me
to.
(yeah, I'm THAT old-school.)

Many thanks!
Matt

is it a broadcom chip?
check out https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/Driver/bcm43xx
AFAIK theres a bug that keeps the additional drivers dialog from
popping
up,
but you should be able to determine from that link if its applicable to
your
hardware, and how to deal with the issue if it is... also, if you have
some
live CD's such as ubuntu 10.04 laying around, see if you can get it
working
in there easily, and note what driver the device uses, and that should
help
you with whatever version you are struggling with now.
