Question How to enable integrated wireless ABG on HP Pavilion Laptop

Hi! I just installed Linux yesterday on my HP Pavilion dv6265 and it has a wireless card that my Ubuntu device manager calls "Pro/Wireless 3945ABG Wireless Connection" but the wireless status LED on my laptop (the one by the wireless on/off switch) is currently red and I cannot get any sort of wireless connection going. Obviously with a laptop integrated wireless is a necessity - could someone suggest a method or two by which I might sort this out?

check out my thread for this card under the networking>wireless section

might give you some direction
its a bitch lol
but I managed to get mine working for the most part.
I will be posting everything I did to get it to work just as soon as i can get it to work on my home network. Currently its only working on my schools network.

but check the thread out anyways, you might find something useful

Its for Fedora Core 6 though. The approach should be similar though.
