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
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!
I'm not too good with the wireless cards, i'm lucky mine just works. Anyhow see if this article helps and is the "WiFi" light on for your laptop?
