so i tried to finally set up my wireless internet on my inspiron 1521 with ubuntu 8.10 yesterday i upgraded to the new 9.04 thinking there would be something new that would make it easier to connect but nothing.
so i find this https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/Driver/bcm43xx/Feisty_No-Fluff and do all the steps (2x)
now i have no ehternet connection or wireless on my laptop!!

when i look at 'connection properties' on the taskbar the only connection in the drop down menu is 'lo' and the status is idle with 44 packets sent and receieved:confused: at one point i remember it haveing eth0 and wlan0 before following the tutorial!

iwconfig
lo no wireless extensions.

eth0 no wireless extensions.

wmaster0 no wireless extensions.

wlan0 IEEE 802.11bg ESSID:" "
Mode:Managed Frequency:2.412GHz Access point: Not- Associated
Tx-Power=20 dBm
Retry min limit:7 RTS thr:off Fragment thr=2352 B

any help would be great:P Thanks!

You should see them under the gnome network manager in the panel. If you dont try activating the other driver.
