    Can't get wireless working

    I need to get the wireless working on this HP dv9005us, I ran lspci and it says the card is "Broadcom Corporation BCM4311 802.11b/g WLAN (rev 1)" and so far I've tried the method that says "Installing drivers for the BCM4311,4312,4321,4322 Cards" on this page and in hardware drivers it says the Broadcom STA wireless driver is activated and in use. Neither iwconfig or ifconfig make any mention to wireless.

    Is your wireless light on? (if you have one)

    Did you reboot?

    try:
    Code:
    ifconfig wlan0 up
    or do lsmod to determine if there are conflicting wireless drivers.

    The ifconfig wlan0 up command gave me "wlan0: ERROR while getting interface flags: No such device" and I didn't even see anything with the slightest mention to anything wireless in lsmod
