    BCM4306 wifi card in Xubuntu


    Hi there, I'm having trouble getting my Belkin 54g wifi card (which has BCM4306 chipset) working in Xubuntu.

    I have got ndiswrapper installed and I loaded some drivers but I cant connect to any networks. I did iwconfig and it returned this:

    Code:
    harryg@ubuntu:~$ iwconfig
    
    lo        no wireless extensions.
    
    
    eth0      no wireless extensions.
    
    
    wmaster0  no wireless extensions.
    
    
    wlan0     IEEE 802.11g  ESSID:"D-Link ADSL Router"
    
                  Mode:Managed  Channel:0  Access Point: Not-Associated
                  Tx-Power=0 dBm
                  Retry min limit:7   RTS thr:off   Fragment thr=2346 B 
                  Link Quality:0  Signal level:0  Noise level:0
                  Rx invalid nwid:0  Rx invalid crypt:0  Rx invalid frag:0
                  Tx excessive retries:0  Invalid misc:0   Missed beacon:0
    I'm thinking the either drivers aren't working or I've done something wrong. Where can I find drivers that have been proven to work with this chipset?
    I also cant install ndisgtk as its not in sypnatic. Is there a command line way to install ndisgtk?

    Please use your other thread for continued discussion of this issue. Having multiple threads open on the same subject matter only throws confusion into the mix for those that try to help you.

    Thanks.
