    can't solve wireless connection


    Just installed Ubuntu 9.04 , the internet is working if i plug in the cable automaticly. But it dosn't work on wireless.

    Probably ubuntu didn't manage to find the drivers or have to do some configuration... I used a script found on the forum to give some diagnosis about my configuration

    I believe this driver is included in the linux-modules-backports package.

    Enable backports in your sources.list.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install linux-backports-modules-jaunty

    Actually it looks like you should just be able to install it via the restricted drivers manager.

    Just open that up and there should be an option to install the driver.

    (You do need the wired connection for this and the above method.)

    It looks like the Broadcom driver module ssb is loading. This will interfere with the wl module that the wireless card uses, so it must be removed.

    But first, I see a Broadcom device listed in the USB device section. Do you have some sort of wireless USB card?
