Help with Dell 1150 wireless card in Dell 5100


I have a dell 5100 with a dell 1150 wireless card. The card worked under Mandrake, but I cannot get it to work with Debian testing (2.6.7-2 kernel). Iwconfig produces:

eth2      IEEE 802.11-DS  ESSID:"Admin-Wireless"  Nickname:"HERMES I"
          Mode:Managed  Frequency:2.457GHz  Access Point: 44:44:44:44:44:44
          Bit Rate:2Mb/s   Tx-Power=15 dBm   Sensitivity:1/3
          Retry limit:4   RTS thr:off   Fragment thr:off
          Encryption key:XXXXXXXXXXXX
          Power Management:off
          Link Quality=0/92  Signal level=134/153  Noise level=134/153
          Rx invalid nwid:0  Rx invalid crypt:0  Rx invalid frag:0
          Tx excessive retries:0  Invalid misc:0   Missed beacon:0

wavemon shows the card, but i am not connected. I have checked the password and ESSID with the lan admin and they are correct. Any ideas on how to troubleshoot this are appreciated. I do not think I need to recompile the kernel because I can see the card.
