WIRELESS FIX TESTER NEEDED

UPDATE: The fix has been released. Thanks to those who tested!
UPDATE: The new update with the ubuntu3 package has been released, not sure how long ago. It fixes all the problems, rendering my fix pretty much useless before I even published it. Sorry, but at least it works.

UPDATE: Testers have been notified with instructions, if you would still like to participate, hit me up. Hopefully we will be getting success stories soon.

There has been complaints that wireless has stopped working recently and not connecting to networks but still being able to see them. This is due to an updated version of network-manager with regressions. If you would like to test a fix to help us make the post, please contact pHreak immediately at pHreaksYcle for AIM or the same at gmail.com for more info!

Thanks,

pHreaksYcle

I had the same problem with my Inspiron 1501 (Ubuntu beta release). But the last Ubuntu patches fixed the problem.

florian, how recent were the updates that made it work again? this was never meant to be a permanent fix, just until they fixed the broken package. Please let us know!

I was just about to email you with this problem. It's like the card just turns off randomly. I have to load xp to turn it back on. I use wicd cause network-manager drives me crazy. Is there a way to turn on the card with the terminal?

Thanks for your fix, it worked great pHreaksYcle. I tried what florian suggested and updated my network manager to ubuntu3, and the problem persisted. So far I haven't had any problems with yours, once again, thanks ;)
