Subject: Re: [CALUG] wifi stopped working
Thanks for the reply, Anderson. I've modprobed a bunch of times, but
it hasn't helped. I've started reading the NET3-4-HOWTO and the
wireless-HOWTO to try to figure out where things could have gone
wrong. If anyone has any troubleshooting advice, I'd love to hear it!
