The Ubuntu forums actually have an entire section devoted to problems with Dell laptops! Dozens and dozens of threads, with plenty of them discussing wireless issues. I have followed much of the advice therein but still not have achieved satisfactory results. I will keep trying when I return home next weekend.
I did a second installation of Ubuntu 10.4 (Lucid Lynx) this morning. When I get back there on Saturday, I will try to get wireless working again. My nerves should have calmed down by then.
Drove to Mom's this afternoon and plan to stay for most of the week. There is much family business to deal with over the coming days.
The house feels so radically different without my father in it. I miss him so much.
Will need lots of sleep tonight. Monday's gonna be a very busy day for all of us.
