There seem to be issues with wifi in Hardy.  (I had a problem with a 
previously perfectly OK atheros pcmcia card).  I think the Dell 1525 may 
have a Broadcom chipset (unlike the 1525n that has ubuntu preinstalled, 
which uses Intel).

  Anyway, there's stuff in the forum.  e.g


where someone reckoned to fix it with ndiswrapper.  There are others, too.
