    Internet trouble!


    I have used Linux before, but feel about ready to take the big leap for an ubuntu only system. It's been a few months though.

    Well, here's my big question. Last few times I installed Ubuntu my internet did not work - I have a broadcom driver, and it seems to mess with Ubuntu's wifi catching skills. Are there any packages I can download in advance + how to use them for when the installation's done and to make the internet work?

    System info: Dell Studio Laptop 1735, Intel core duo 2

    WLAN Card: Dell wireless 1397 wlan mini card rev 5.00
    Chipset: BCM4315 / BCM 22062000
