I recently copied my LM19 install from a Toshiba laptop to a Lenovo ThinkPad laptop. The new laptop had a W7 install on it and I used clonezilla to copy root and home images to new partitions and then running the LM19 install from a USB stick to get the grub and dual boot working. All my data appears to have been transferred to the new laptop successfully.
Both wireless and ethernet are working on the W7 install, only ethernet works on the LM19 install. I see this for networking from the terminal with inxi -Fzx

I am no longer seeing any wi-fi connections being offered from the icon in the panel where I used to see and choose my home network wi-fi connection from. It only shows an ethernet connection.
I wonder if there is some way to erase and replace or update all the hardware info that relates to the wi-fi hardware in this SL510.
Any suggestions are appreciated...
