I saved the How To as a text file , , and printed it out as well. I am not sure what to do at this point. Haha yeah, we are fast approaching 1, replies. If it does then everything is working fine! You don’t need to “install” WPA. Should I do a fresh install and try again? On XP the wireless card is rock solid.

Someone I work with recommended Ubuntu so I decided to give it a shot.

This is true, however, I found that without ndiswrapper my signal quality dwindled. So with that knowledge I began. The card in my system is the same one Broadcom Thank you very much for this post.

It took me awhile to figure that out. I have used both and my experience with ndiswrapper has been far more satisfying, if you have a look at the few pages after the last post you’ll see a bit of discussion on the matter. I have been trying and trying but nothing worked. If so, how can I get this running? Having a problem logging in? The displays indicate a connection, but the do not change.

Hi, I need some help to get my wireless up on my laptop The configurations are listed below 1. I disabled wirelfss hotkey for bluetooth and the wireless and rebooted my machine. A workaround of the same general kind as the one proposed in comment 4 of that bug would presumably have worked for me, but simpler was to switch to using the ‘b43’ driver rather than ‘wl’.

I tried to uninstall the ndiswrapper and the driver. Once you have the light off, it will not light up again until you follow the rest of the how-to and run “sudo modprobe ndiswrapper” at which point you coorp the kernel to use the ndiswrapper module enabling the driver you just installed.

Thank you so much! Scroll down to the entry that says Wireless. So rebooted or re-buntu-ed?

Now the laptot boots perfectly with the wifi disabled. Pthen broacdom need to boot up Ubuntu and follow the rest of the guide!

The dell drivers worked for the hp txus. You do need to blacklist the driver still and then after a reboot everything should be working.
