Debian and its clones "The Debian project has updated the stable distribution Debian GNU/Linux 4.0. This update adds security updates to the stable release, together with a few corrections to serious problems. As always, the first point release also corrects a few issues that have been noticed too late in the release process to stop the release, but still should be fixed."

The Debian Wiki is a good place to get started: see wiki.debian.org

The problem is likely that you've got an Intel wireless card, which means you have to manually download an install the (proprietary) drivers. E.g. I've the IPW3945 card, so I had to do the following

http://wiki.debian.org/Installing_Debian_On/PageFragment_Intel_ipw3...

Once you've got that (or the apporpriate driver) installed, install knetworkmanager (or gnome-networkmanager) to manage your wireless networks.

Actually, it is a Intersil Prism 2.5 Wavelan. I've never had to install proprietary drivers, which is why I'm so shocked. I'll give the wiki a try.

Regards.
