Wireless was working but has failed. Tried it under root but no luck,booted from live CD and was working so i guess its a config fault.
In Control center the hardware says intel corp Pro7Wireless 220 BG (calexio2) Network, when i checked this under live CD it said eth1 intel corp Pro7Wireless 220 BG (calexio2) Network. When i try to configure it the message says "Unable to find network interface for selected device (using IPW2200 driver )".
Today i installed Privoxy from Synaptic and have been trying to configure that, all was well before, so i have uninstalled it and being very new to Linux am struggling to rectify the problem. Hardware is IBM T43 40GB, 2Gb Ram, and most of the FN keys work even got OSD with them,only FN+F5 have never worked which toggles between bluetooth and wireless and i haven,t found a cure for this. The wireless LED has also stopped working last couple of days.
Another thing i tried was another kernel 22.214.171.124-pclos1.bfs but this didn,t help so have reverted back to 126.96.36.199-pclos6.bfs.
