Wireless Networking had disappeared as a checkable option in Network Manager in Hardy 8.04.1. Eventually, I installed Hardy 8.04.2 that had the Broadcom STA driver in it. Wireless Networking was available as an option and it was checked, but I couldn't set up a connection. In diddling with Network Manager, I unchecked Roaming, and then Wireless Networking disappeared from the Network Manager's dropdown menu, and I haven't been able to get to reappear. In the dual-booted Vista, Wi-Fi runs fine, but just not in Ubuntu. This is basically the same situation that existed about 10 days to 2 weeks ago, only that there is a newer version of Hardy installed. Does anyone know of a way to get Wi-Fi back without reinstalling Ubuntu?
