1) What is the make and model of your laptop?
2) How do you connect wirelessly? PCMIA? USB? Inbuilt? What is the make and model of your card?

In my experience (2 weeks) an up grade to Ubuntu7.10 made it work automatically...
(had a fight on my hands with Ubuntu7.04)
I am retired and not an IT person so sometimes i have Troubles also.
