Caroline >>> For me!  And I'm very grateful for all the interest shown 
by friends on this list.  I hadn't had much response to a couple of wifi 
questions, and I began to wonder whether the idea that Ubuntu was great 
on the desktop should be taken literally:  widely used on desktops;  not 
much on laptops.  And I was also aware of the many and various issues 
people on forums have always had with wifi:  not just with drivers for 
interfaces, but with getting encryption to work, and hiding ESSIDs

	Anyway, I hope everyone has been interested to see that about twenty 
five of us reported having wifi operational (some on desktops;  many on 
laptops).  And most people have their wifi encrypted - either WEP or WPA 
- with pretty much everyone broadcasting the ESSID.

	Twenty five.  What proportion of the whole membership is that, Al? 
About 20% (guessing)?

	Anyway, thanks again, everyone, for bothering to reply!
