apt "wireless-tools is unavailable"


I'm really confused! Just trying out debian sarge for 1st time. Apt works great - except that it refuses to get any of the wireless packages I need. It retrieves everything else fine. I've tried about 10 different mirrors.

Could someone give me a line that I can add to sources.list that will work? BTW - i can't get into Debians website either, are they having problems?

Any ghelp greatly appreciated
