    I own a dell xps m1530 which was running 10.10, after I updated to Natty, my wireless was not working. I followed the upon steps and then ran sudo modprobe b43 to rescan the bus. After doing that, my wireless was working. Thanks.

    Ubuntu 12.04 no wireless on Dell 4300

    Thanks for your patient work!

    Followed the removal and installation process. Did not work. Then I used Ubuntu "add-proprietary driver", unplugged the wired connection, restarted and: "woala!". Worked. I had added the proprietary driver before and restarted without solving anything. So it seed that
    sudo apt-get purge broadcom-sta-common broadcom-sta-source bcmwl-kernel-source
    Install the correct one:
    sudo apt-get install b43-fwcutter firmware-b43-installer
    followed by ubuntus easy-install-proprietarythings-by-GUI did the job for me.

    Re: Ubuntu 11.10 no wireless

    Hi,

    I'm struggling to get Ubuntu 11.10 running from a Live USB on my Inspiron 1501 Laptop with Broadcom wireless adapter.

    I have seen lots of posts relating to this common problem, but I can't find any set of instructions which works for me. Can anyone help? Otherwise I'm probably just going to give up.

    Thanks!
