    What is the latest firmware version 4 that I need? I found the website, but there are a lot of choices.

    Here is where a wired connection makes it easier. To get this working is a one line command.

    Ah, well. First you need to download the b43-fwcutter package to your usb stick. (The download link is at the bottom of the page. Looks like you want the i386.)

    Then you need to download the firmware. This is the download link.

    Transfer these files to your Ubuntu box and to make things easy, put them in your home folder.

    EDIT: Whoops, first you need to install the b43-fwcutter package. You should be able to do this just by double clicking on it.

    Open a terminal and type
    Code:
    export FIRMWARE_INSTALL_DIR="/lib/firmware"
    tar xjf broadcom-wl-4.150.10.5.tar.bz2
    cd broadcom-wl-4.150.10.5/driver
    sudo ../../b43-fwcutter-012/b43-fwcutter -w "$FIRMWARE_INSTALL_DIR" wl_apsta_mimo.o
    That should do it. (You may need to restart.)

    If you use code tags, you can avoid that problem.

    Whoops, my fault. The way we did it, you should just use
    Code:
    sudo b43-fwcutter -w "$FIRMWARE_INSTALL_DIR" wl_apsta_mimo.o

    Reed9,

    I have just configured my CentOS. I will start a new thread concerning my own wireless issues. I did a quick lspci and saw it detected the DLINK card as Atheros.

    I'll try to get the info off of my machine and post it here in the wireless forum.

    Hello shutdown,

    It seems Reed9 and I have almost solved my wireless issue. I have follows all the instructions to the best of my ability, but I am still getting an error message when I type in that last command into the terminal. Do you know what could be causing this?

    I'm just about in the same spot as you. Maybe a little bit behind.

    Give me some time to see if I can figure this thing out.

    Good thing I got my wireless card today!
