Also, what does 'lspci' show? I've come to rely on it quite a lot while
troubleshooting my WiFi (which, sadly, stopped working after a recent
upgrade, and despite my best efforts hasn't yet returned to the land of
the living. I'll drag those tribulations in later, maybe.)
Anyway, the path from _that_ end goes something like this:
1) Use 'lspci' to figure out the hardware.
2) Use Google to figure out the chipset, if applicable (a big deal with
3) Use Google again to figure out the right module, if it's not obvious.
