Hey guys just got my hands on a dell inspiron 1520 and installed jaunty on it. Now I am having one hell of a weird issue. I installed the propietery driver for the Broadcom BCM4311. It sees the networks. It can try to connect to them as well. But it will get the two little orbs that signify network connection green but still fails to connect. However I can use the eth for inet but really would like wireless any help would mean a ton


Couple things to add. This computer is 32 bit and lscpi views the network card.

There a lots of problems using this card under Ubuntu and lots of approaches to fixing it. Here is one such method:
