Smile "Debian Lenny - Wireless not detected"

Hi everyone!

I have been Linux user(Ubuntu)for about 3 years since my switching from Windows. Although I did not have any complain against it, I wanted to try Debian Lenny. I have already partitioned my disk and installed Debian. Everything worked fine according to my expectations except for one thing: wireless.

I tried different things to get it works without result. The light indicator of my computer seems to be working but the Network Manager does not detect any signal. In Ubuntu the wireless is detected automatically even using the “Live CD.”

Can somebody help me out. Please in suggesting any solution don't use technical jargon I can't understand. I still consider myself newbie in Linux.



The configuration of my machine is:

Model: Toshiba NB205-330BL
Processor & Chipset: Intel Atom processor N280; 1.66 GHz.
Communication: 10/100 ethernet, Atheros 802.11b/g wireless LAN.
