The wireless driver for Dell Inspiron 8500 is Broadcom according to DELL Support.
Check if have wrongly try to install the driver and the atheros chipset name is displayed on the Device Manager.

Uninstall the Wireless Driver (Atheros) and download the driver for your Wireless card from the link below

Ubuntu 8.10 wont detect my wireless card


You can try looking in the manufacturer website to see if they have made a driver for Linux. Actually, most Linux distros have a nice set of drivers, but not all hardware out there have good Linux support.Surprisingly, Ubuntu 8.10 detected one CompUSA USB wireless adapter for which they don't have the XP drivers.

Intrepid Ibex Beta


If you are using a laptop, yes, it is better. Mainly due to some more driver support for wireless and bluetooth. I do not think there is any performance increase, just more hardware compatibility.

I use ubuntu 8.04 Hardy on a PC, there would be no need for me to upgrade at this time.

G'luck
