Best Linux OS for wireless compatability

I am using a Dell Studio XPS 1645 laptop & must be able to communicate wirelessly with my network. Is there any OS that is easier to configure wirelessly?

01/26/2011: Using Ubuntu 10.10. It works like a charm. Thanks for the help.

I guess no, as every linux distribution use the same kernel. As a user, I found the ubuntu netbook ok for the installation of the wireless : the more obvious anyway within meego, moblin and debian.

I you want the minimum of the headache, go for ubuntu. If you want more secure - There are rumors.. You should do some googling..

Try Linux Mint,Also might take a look at PCLinuxOS.
Most Dell Computers work great with Linux.
The reason to us Mint is because it works better than Ubuntu for New users.
