Which model of wireless interface (built-in wireless is still an interface)?

If you have one of the newer Intel 3945/4965 wireless cards, you may want to check out Intel® Wireless WiFi Link drivers for Linux*, or install packages are provided by Intel for Linux.

wifi in Nubuntu problem

I am having the same problem. it does not detect my network. I Have the intel 3945ABG with the newest version of Nubuntu which is supposed to have the drivers pre loaded. I find them fine on the Vista side. Any suggestions?
