After some investigation, I found that the broadcom drivers aren’t actually being loaded properly Any ideas what I need to do to get this working? After installing the Broadcom STA driver from the Proprietary drivers selection I was able to connect to my wireless network, however the connection repeatedly drops. Jules In Network Indicator menu click on edit connections and see if it’s listed there? I’m talking about the icon that’s second from the right in this image: I have used Backtrack in the past, however I prefer the “emptiness” of a fresh, proper Ubuntu install, so I can configure it how I want from the start, without having to re-configure Backtrack and risk breaking some of the installed software, most of which falls outside what I usually have to use. As for other reasons for the DCs, I have another ubuntu install on my desktop, with an a card using ath9k drivers, and it has no issue at all with the same network

Puppy Linux Discussion Forum :: View topic – Dell/Intel wireless card in dell laptop
This bug seems to be related: I have used Backtrack in the past, however I prefer the “emptiness” of a fresh, proper Ubuntu install, so I can configure it how I want from the start, without having to re-configure Backtrack and risk breaking some of the installed software, most of which falls outside what I usually have to use.
Here are the important commands I don’t think the disconnects have the slightest to do with the name of the interface. Jules 1 2 Here is what I have learned so far.
I believe the card is being incorrectly detected by the kernel because iwlist scan reports eth1 as delo supporting scanning, and iwconfig reports that eth1 has no wireless extensions The 3 steps in answer 2 worked for me on my Dell Inspiron similar to the for Ubuntu This reminds me of one of my favorite questions on this forum which I’ve seen many times.
A workaround of the same general kind as the one proposed in comment 4 of that bug would presumably have worked for me, but simpler was to switch to using the ‘b43’ driver rather than ‘wl’. Home Questions Tags Users Unanswered. Thanks for the responses. minni-card

Dell wireless BCM Ubuntu How to make my Dell wlan minicard work Any ideas, help or whatever would be appreciated. I had same problems with Broadcom driver on Lucid and Maverick. It is easy to force a device to load another driver, however it’s very difficult and usually mini-cardd to get the wrong driver to actually operate and connect.
Not what I wanted to hear, but that’s not your fault. I have been working with a case where the interface is ra0. It needs to have a green icon next to your driver name. I am running Wideless-n Hi, welcome to AskUbuntu and thanks for your contribution.
Are you sure that you activated your Broadcom STA driver?. Again, Thanks in advance. It seems that if airmon-ng is required then the Broadcom is not the card for you.
min-card My problem appears to be that in a machine with both a BCM43xx wireless and BCM44xx wired connection, the driver for the wired connection requires the generic ‘ssb’ module, which grabs the resources needed by both, expecting the final drivers to cooperate with it? To that end, I blacklisted ‘wl’. After some investigation, I found that the broadcom drivers aren’t actually being loaded properly The solution was to remove the incorrect driver causing the network conflict del I found here: I have no options for wireless networks in the networks menu, only for my wired network.
