New Install of Ubuntu 9.10, network manager not working

I just installed Ubuntu 9.10 on my son's Dell Inspiron 1526 laptop and couldn't connect to the network manager. I read some other posts and killed the network manager and installed WICD, but that program won't start up.


Link encap:local Loopback
inet addr: Mask:

TX packets:4 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0

RX bytes:240 (240.0 B) TX bytes:240 (240.0 B)

no wireless extensions

Any ideas?

ubuntu 9.10 is out of support-

Use a newer version, or change distros.
