      Hi All,

      I have a Dell latitude D600 laptop and the wireless connection is
      working fine with kubuntu 6.06 LTS. I upgraded to kubuntu 7.04 then
      the wireless connection is working for while then , somehow, the
      signal dropped down for some reason .. I have no clue.

      Then I tried to install kubuntu 7.10 (Feisty - Gibbon). The wiless is
      not working at all. Note that the dhcp parametrs are set correctly:
      SSID, WEP, etc...

      And, I'm getting some strange connection (see the output for ifconfig
      command).
      My router is a Dlink and my network IP address is 192.168.0.*

      Any help on how to make this Pro/wireless 2200BG working ?

      Thanks.
      Abdon.
