My wireless network didnot work at all
I have alreay try to follow the troubleshooting instruction and more confuse

SO I have check lspci and thw wireless interface shown
Intel Corporation PRO/wireless 3945 ABG

SO I have check driver by lshw -C network with the result come out as below

It look like the wireless interface autonegotiation not "on" yet
So I try to config the interface by Networks Tool but always get the answer " The Interface does not exit "

Then I have try to manually connect the wireless network but still not work
