    I think his module is loaded Nuj as wlan0 shows in ifconfig and iwlist.

    OP can do a check on
    Debian HCL; Debian GNU/Linux device driver check & report

    and follow sites instrucions and post partial link like

    ht tp://kmuto.jp/debian/hcl/index.rhtmlx

    to show readout

    For Ubuntu wireless

    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wi...otingProcedure

    Step 2 is what you need to follow.

    To OP. You show wlan0 wireless interface. Network manager does not show wireless?

    Hi,
    has this been fixed. Cos I am facing the same issue with my Dell Inspiron laptop, running ubuntu 10.04 on dual boot with win 7. Can't get the wi fi run, no issues with the hardware though. Tried re installing the driver which supposedly supports windows only and as expected didnt work. I also tried downloading a linux compatible driver from Broadcom site but nothing happens after i run the exe, guess my card might not be supported by that.

    Thanks,
    P

    Hi, praveenm1001. Welcome to LinuxForums!

    Start here, and post back the results in a new thread.
    You'll be likely to get more accurate advice, as you may be using a different wireless chipset.
