    Please Help!


    I've been trying to get my wireless up and running so I can get the hell away from XP but so far....no good. I have a Dell 1390 wireless card. Here is what I've done so far:

    Installed new version of Ndiswrapper
    Downloaded driver from dell.com
    installed driver

    Here is the output from lspci for my wireless
    0c:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation Dell Wireless 1390 WLAN Mini-PCI Card (rev 01)

    The install worked fine but for some reason it says "Hardware: No" or something like that in the wireless section of Ubuntu. PLEASE HELP!


    THANKS MUCH!
