I have a dell vostro 1720 with 1510 wireless card. As supplied runs on win 7. Automatically found my Bellkin router and connects to www without any problems. Used wubi to load u9.10, 64 bi, as a disc from 8daysaweek, and all seems well, except that the wireless card is not found.
I also have a dell desktop running windows XP. Used wubi to load u9.10, 32 bit, as a disc from Canonical,. and all seems well. Used a Belkin USB adaptor to connect to the router and all works well.
Any help or suggestions would be welcome!!
