XPS M1330 WLAN and backports-modules weirdness

Hi,

I'm running Ubuntu Hardy on an XPS M1330 (model came with Ubuntu) and found that after installing linux-backports-modules (see http://linux.dell.com/wiki/index.php/Ubuntu_8.04/Issues/WiFi_LED_does_not_work) WLAN works most of the time, except when I'm visiting my parents place. Uninstalling the backports modules makes WLAN access work again. Other access points (e.g. the one at my home) work with backports modules installed or not.

Any hints?

Kind regards,

Wolfgang
