We need to know the exact chipset. I believe the Dell 1395 is a broadcom chip. Check the output of
Code:
lspci -vnn | grep 14e4
If that doesn't return anything, just post the output of
Code:
lspci
Assuming it's a broadcom, you'll either need the b43 driver, which requires extra firmware to work, or the Broadcom STA driver.
