i prepared a thumbdrive with grub and a selection of lubuntu iso's for easy
installing.  then tested in a free partition on a (dell inspiron) laptop.
installed trusty.  no wifi.  installed precise.  no wifi.  but huh?!  this
laptop has been running precise for ages, and still is, not in the test
partition, and wifi works just fine there!  i installed it myself, ages
ago, and don't remember having to do anything odd or special.

can anyone drop me some clues how to make wifi work on the new installs, or
what to compare between the two partitions?
