I'm using Mandriva 2010. on a Dell e6500.
Wireless worked from the Live Disk and after the install. No issues configuring. Connected immediately. (I was psyched!)
Either after a reboot or (maybe) an update, wireless no longer works. The network is "seen" in both Control Center and in the tray applet, but I can't connect. Connectivity very low.
- iwconfig output:
lo no wireless extensions.
eth0 no wireless extensions.
wmaster0 no wireless extensions.

- The iwlagn driver is what has worked with this card previously

Other odd symptoms:
In the tray applet, when I select to "Manage Wireless Networsk," ten networks are displayed, most are garbled. Only one lists my ssid.
I'm stumped. Something has changed. Thoughts?
