After messing around with some of the suggestions that people made I found
that going back to my original packages with kernel-126.96.36.199-85 actually
does work if I wait long enough - it seems on occasions it takes some time
for the connection to be made with the AP - not sure why it varies yet . .
I am using a Gateway LT30 but the only module loaded seems to be "wl" -the
complete list is attached.
