OK, that is weird since I have not had problems with the Intel wifi
for years now. Does your Latitude have a hardware switch that turns
off your wifi? I know my current Latitude E6400 does as does the D830
I had before.
What modules are loaded? "lsmod |grep 80211", is there an interface?
For me the Intel wifi devices have just worked.
