I'm having some trouble with my bcm4309. The networking tools seem to think that I have the driver correctly loaded, and when I try to activate it and exit out of the window, it does not appear the next time I open it. I've tried windows drivers as well but I think that I'm just too stupid to figure out how to configure it. Is there a totally newbie way to configure wireless internet for Debian Etch? I've managed to get it working under knoppix with a similliar driver setup. Is there any way to get setup tools like those for Debian? Thanks in advance for any help and btw here's my lsmod and /etc/network/interfaces (with the wep key taken out even if it is a joke to crack).

# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
# and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).

# The loopback network interface
