Intel Pro/Wireless- Network-Manager wont work


I am using Ubuntu 6.10, Edgy with an HP Pavillion dv1000

my wireless card (internal) is Intel Pro/Wireless 2200

When I installed, my wireless card was automaticly detected, and enabled. I was able to connect to a network right from the start.

However, I like network-manager, so I tried to install it. It installed fine, but it will only work with my wired connection. And not my wireless. (the whole point of network-manager).

When I click on it, It just says "Wired Network", nothing else.

It worked when I used Kubuntu (6.10 and 6.04) so i think it must have something to do with the gnome front end.

Code:
ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ nm-tool --help

NetworkManager Tool

State: disconnected

- Device: eth0 ----------------------------------------------------------------
  NM Path:           /org/freedesktop/NetworkManager/Devices/eth0
  Type:              Wired
  Driver:            8139too
  Active:            no
  HW Address:        00:C0:9F:85:8C:DF

  Capabilities:
    Supported:       yes
    Carrier Detect:  yes
    Speed:           10 Mb/s

  Wired Settings
    Hardware Link:   no
Thx In advance

Please post the output of cat /etc/network/interfaces. The thing is, some time ago network-manager needed your managed connections to be commented (more like not statically defined) in said file. I don't know if that's still a requirement but it could be a good starting point.

I'd change your interfaces file to this (backup it up first) then retry.
Code:
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp

auto eth1
iface eth1 inet dhcp

auto ath0
iface ath0 inet dhcp

auto wlan0
iface wlan0 inet dhcp

Try doing the following just to try something else. Change /etc/network/interfaces to:
Code:
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp

auto eth1
iface eth1 inet dhcp

#auto ath0
#iface ath0 inet dhcp

#auto wlan0
#iface wlan0 inet dhcp
It's just commenting out the wireless entries.
