I've been flopping between ndiswrapper and broadcom due to the freezes that the broadcom driver caused with previous kernels. Now that I'm on 2.6.27-11 I decided to give it another shot, but nothin' doing:
'Hardware drivers' Reports that the driver is "activated but not currently in use".
lsmod doesn't list a 'wl' driver, however it does list bcm drivers:
I tried removing the bcm drivers with modprobe and it disabled my trackpad, so not the right thing to do. ha!
~$ lsmod |grep bcm
bcm5974 17152 0
usbcore 175888 8 bcm5974,uvcvideo,appleir,btusb,usbhid,ehci_hcd,uhci_hcd
Anyway, trying to manually add the 'wl' driver to modprobe gives me this error:
So I'm kind of stymied.
$ sudo modprobe -a wl
FATAL: Error inserting wl (/lib/modules/2.6.27-11-generic/volatile/wl.ko): Invalid module format
WARNING: Error running install command for wl
Here are some more outputs.
~$ lshw -C Network
WARNING: you should run this program as super-user.

Also on a somewhat related note, ndiswrapper stopped working too- is the bcmwl5.inf correct for 64-bit as well?
lo no wireless extensions.
eth0 no wireless extensions.
pan0 no wireless extensions.
Thanks for the help,
