    Wireless does not work after 11.10 install on Dell Latitide D630

    Wireless did not work after 11.04 update, did fresh install of 11.10 and it did not work. Wireless card is bcm43xx. Installed proprietary STA driver, blacklisted both bcma and brcmsmac per your forum, still does not work. I have not seen any other fixes specific to 11.10.

    Wildmanne,

    I ran into the same problem after updating this morning, and your code fixed my laptop as well. Kudos!

    For the sake of the record, mine is a Dell Inspiron 1525.
