    [SOLVED] New to Debian... Help getting wifi to work?


    Hi, so I have just switched to Debian from ubuntu about hmm 5 hours ago. The entire time I have been troubleshooting and trying to figure out how to get the wireless card in my laptop to work with absolutely no prevail.

    Debian 5.0 Lenny

    My wireless card chipset is Broadcom Corporation BCM4328 802.11a/b/g/n (rev 03)

    ifconfig comes up with this.

    ifconfig
    eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:1c:23:9d:1a:48
    inet addr:192.168.0.14 Bcast:192.168.0.255 Mask:255.255.255.0
    inet6 addr: fe80::21c:23ff:fe9d:1a48/64 Scope:Link
    UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
    RX packets:10601 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0

    RX bytes:7725544 (7.3 MiB) TX bytes:2166989 (2.0 MiB)

    lo Link encap:Local Loopback
    inet addr:127.0.0.1 Mask:255.0.0.0
    inet6 addr: ::1/128 Scope:Host
    UP LOOPBACK RUNNING MTU:16436 Metric:1
    RX packets:8 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
    TX packets:8 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
    collisions:0 txqueuelen:0
    RX bytes:560 (560.0 B) TX bytes:560 (560.0 B)

    iwconfig comes up with this.

    iwconfig
    lo no wireless extensions.

    eth0 no wireless extensions.


    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
