    I tried:
    sudo apt-get install linux-backports-modules-cw-3.1-oneiric-generic

    and reboot.

    still doesn't work.

    attached netinfo.txt and ls /lib/firmware result

    Re: Ubuntu 11.10 no wireless

    Hi Wild Man, thank you for your help so far. Could you give it another try on the firmware? Thanks!

    Re: Ubuntu 11.10 no wireless

    Hey Wildman, I just feel like thanks is always warranted. I recently had to scrub my computer, and have a fresh install of 11.10, the only thing I could get running, and you post way back on page 2, #15 was enormously helpful. Got everything working, I'm much obliged. Need to figure out exactly what I did, but that comes later. Cheers!

    Then run this command and watch for errors.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install b43-fwcutter firmware-b43-installer
    After it intalls disconnect your wired connection and restart your computer.
    THANK YOU SOOO MUCH. Got this inspiron 1521 w/ a 43xx card inside. light would not come on for wireless... tried many terminal fixes in past few day but this (gift from father in law virused vista revived with ubuntu 12.10) laptop would not let wireless work... thought card may be junk. bought netgear adapter and realized it would be same amount of terminal jockeying to make it work... so gave the internal card one more go... stumbled on this post and OMG thank you.... those 2 term line entries and a restart have enabled my internal card now... New to ubuntu world, was semi frustrated, but curiously intrigued. Now I'm wanting to learn more and will be spending alot of my time trying to do so. Thanx for the spark!
