Re: Debian 5.0.2 network manager not working?
Well, apparently Network Manager isn't the problem since I installed wicd and it says "No wireless networks found" (even after removing LAN line, rebooting, etc). Have done a ton of researching, editing different files such as /etc/network/interfaces, but nothing seems to get my wireless card to sniff out signals no matter what I do.
I'm at a loss, can anyone help? Again my system info is a Broadcom BCM4306 wifi card on a Dell Inspiron 8600 with a fresh install of Lenny. I had the wifi working without hardly any effort with 5.0.1 but now with 5.0.2 it won't "wake up" so to speak and sniff out wireless networks. iwconfig shows this:

If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.
