Hello and thank you for the tutorial.
I have everything in place but the wireless NIC gets turned off as soon as GDM starts (the wireless led is turned on during system boot but it turns off when the graphical interface loads).
I can see all the available wireless networks in range but I can't connect to my wireless network (I guess it has to do to the wireless network card being turned off).
System info: Asus A7D with a BCM4318 [AirForce One 54g] 802.11g Wireless LAN Controller wireless network card.
on a lshw -C network command I have the following output:
The dmesg shows:

but yet my wireless card remains turned off (the wireless ledd is off even though the bluetooth one is lit).

I will appreciate any help you can provide on this matter as I really can't use the system without a working wireless card.
Thank you in advance!
