    Default Network card not recognized

    Hello,

    Since I upgrade from R1 to R2 (link), I have a little problem about wifi. Indeed my network card can't be find.

    Before post on this forum I tried those commands :

    /etc/init.d/networking start

    # iwconfig
    lo no wireless extensions.
    eth0 no wireless extensions.

    # ifconfig wlan0 up
    wlan0: ERROR while getting interface flags: No such device


    # ifconfig wlan0
    wlan0 : error fetching interface information : Device not found.


    Problems started when I install the new kernel :
    # apt-get install linux-image-2.6.35.8


    Have you any idea about this, please ? Thanks a lot.
