Please don't suggest to people that they install proprietary software;
it's a ruinous compromise.

All Intel WiFi cards require proprietary software and are
totally unusable in the free world. I see that one of the things that
Bill Auger suggested was replacing it - and that's a good idea. It's
what I'd do. There is a company called ThinkPenguin that sells various
WiFi cards. They even have USB WiFi, if you don't feel comfortable
opening the computer.
