    Did anybody with an Inspiron get their wireless card working on Hardy?

    My Inspiron 1521 with a Broadcom 43xx wireless card had available firmware in Gutsy. On Hardy, I don't see this available. Did anybody get theirs working?

    I installed Hardy on my Inspiron 6400, in order to have my wireless working I had to go to restricted drivers and enable the broadcom drver, reboot and voila! wireless working and I can connect to my router

    My Inspiron 1420n worked with wireless in Hardy right out of the box, no questions asked.

    My 1505 is not working, either. I don't have any restricted drivers listed to enable. See my inquiry 2 hours ago. Any ideas?
