I have a wireless card but I cannot find anything in the UI to enable it, or connect to my home net. Would Debian come with a connection manager with an oddball name?
Hi Jim, welcome to the forums!
Debian Lenny has excellent support for most Broadcom cards; you probably do not need to switch distros or kernels to get your card working.
The first step is to figure out specifically which card you have (it makes a difference whether you use the b43 or wl module).
These two wiki pages should get you started, good luck!
