Netbook wlan0 SIOCSIFFLAG: No such file or directory - Help?


Hi, I can't seem to figure out how to solve my problem. I have a HP Mini 1100 and I can't seem to get wireless working. As the title says, when I type ifconfig wlan0 up I get the SIOCSIFFLAG: No such file or directory error. wlan0 is listed in the output of ifconfig -all. Here is the output of lspci and lsmod:
