Dell 1350 WLAN card not functioning correctly

I have a Dell Inspiron 1000 with a Dell 1350 WLAN pc card. It had the last reminder that I once used Windows on it until I formatted and installed Ubuntu 9.04 on it. Now the WLAN card will not even light up. I was going to use this machine to look at other distros but with no Internet I have a problem. No ethernet available. The previous posts on 1350 WLAN cards do not appear to be the same. Is there a way to mount the card from the terminal. If so what is the command. I appreciate all the help that anyone can give me.
After reboot, the card was recognized while I was loading Puppy Linux and appears to be functioning now.

Thumbs up

Thanks for posting the solution. That's the LQ spirit.

A suggestion for the future: If you answer your own question, put the solution in a separate post; this does 2 good things:
  • It generates e-mail to anyone who subscribed to either the thread or the forum.
  • It avoids the creation of oxymoronic 0-reply solved threads.


dell, wlan
