BCM4318 with Ubuntu Feisty
I have a compaq v2000 with a Broadcom bcm4318 b/g wireless card. At first I tried using the native bcm43xx drivers and bcm43xx-fwcutter but I couldn't get anything. Then I reinstalled the whole OS and tried using ndiswrapper. I managed to get yo work with niswrapper but I can only connect if I use a static IP. My router is a Linksys WRT150N a/b/g/n set up on DHCP. Any ideas what it could be?

I have a very similar setup, are you running dhclient wlan0 after you've entered your information?

Nope, I didn't know that. had to run it as sudo and eth1 cause wlan0 is not my interface for wireless I don't know why but it worked perfectly thx a million. Do I have to do this everytime I boot up or is there anyway of putting it to start automatically?

Should be though I don't use Gnome Ubuntu so I couldn't tell you any GUI stuff but there should be network tools or something to iwconfig and dhcp all that stuff anyway.
BTW would you please post the output of iwconfig though they may want to blank ESSIDS and keys
