    Hmm, the code tags should work. The only things that should trigger the URL restriction are

    debug-1 (1 of 4)

    Here is "debug-1.txt" , 1 of 4 files.

  3. #13

    debug-1 (1 of 4) (try again)

    Here is one of four, again.

    0c:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Broadcom Corporation BCM4311 802.11b/g WLAN [14e4:4311] (rev 01)
    This is your network card, and it is supported by both the b43 drivers and the broadcom proprietary wl driver.

    Looking at your modules, both are apparently installed and loading. I didn't notice ndiswrapper in there, so that's good for us now actually. The b43 requires you to download extra firmware to work, so let's see if it will work with the wl.

    Open a terminal and type
    sudo modprobe -r b43
    sudo modprobe -r wl
    sudo modprobe wl
    sudo depmod -a
    sudo /etc/init.d/network restart
    Hopefully, your network will now be working. If not, we'll want lsmod again dmesg again, and maybe to try the b43 instead. Note that I believe the wireless will be listed as eth1 using the wl driver, not wlan0.

    If this works, you'll want to blacklist the b43 driver so it doesn't load and interfere.

    Hit ALT+F2 and type gksudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist

    This will open a file in your text editor. Add
    blacklist b43
    to the file, save and close.

    EDIT: You might need to restart networkmanager as well.
    sudo /etc/init.d/NetworkManager restart
    I think Ubuntu capitalizes networkmanager like that. You can try without capitals if that doesn't work.

    EDIT again: It might be /etc/init.d/networking, not network at the end of the first bit, sorry.

    Ok, I have to swap out my hard drives and reboot so it might take a little while.
