I am new to ubuntu, I have a compaq presario c300 that I just installed ubuntu 7.4 on. The wireles is not working and i ran a code that told me my network controller is a Broadcom Corporation Cell wireless 1390 wlan mini-pci card (rev1). Can someone help me get the drivers instaled. I am so new to ubuntu so it needs to be basic sorry

is there a reason you're running such an older version of ubuntu? 8.10 would probably be your best bet where they resolved most of the wireless related issues...

I had an old copy of 7.4
I downloaded a copy version 10.4 and tried to load it first. It started to load but got hung up. I think the message said something like a"could not partition" What is the best way to update the version

Lucid Lynx (10.4) just began development. Karmic Koala (9.10) is the most current release.
