In September, I purchased a Dell Inspiron 1420n with Ubuntu 7.4.  Until last month, I could connect to wireless networks.  Last month, I put the laptop into roam mode and visited an open wifi hot spot.  When I returned home, I turned eth1 off roam to discover that it had disconnected.

I have WiFi radar installed, and I can see my wireless network.  But under Connection Properties, eth1 shows as disconnected. 

I just upgraded to Ubuntu 7.10 hoping that would fix things, but eth 1 is still disconnected. 

Any help would be appreciated, and would prevent me buying a copy of Windows to get wireless to work.
