Re: laptop hangs while connecting to open wifi network

thank you very much for your letter. Sorry for my long silence.

I solved the problem by moving to Ubuntu 12 with 3.2.0 kernel version.

Actually the problem was not only with wireless but with cardreader,
touchpad and screen brightness also. I think kernel 2.6.x does not
support chipset of Dell XPS notebook fully. And kernel 3.2.0 does

Thank you very much again for your time.

Best regards,
