the error message '8B06' is probably generated because the wireless 
interface is not correctly configured with the network configuration 
tool. If you want to connect to an access point, please make sure that 
you have set the mode to 'Managed' (it is possible that it is set to 
'Auto' right now) and if you do not use WEP, please make sure that the 
WEP key text box is really empty.

If you require more assistance, please send at support at linuxant.com the 
output of 'dumpdiag'. Type the following in a root shell:

dldrconfig --dumpdiag

Just send us the generated file located in /tmp 
('driverloaderdiag.txt'). It'll help us solve the problem.
