    Compwiz, instructions would be great. After playing with it a while longer, I couldn't get it to do anything. Sadly for me no wireless = no Gnu/Linux (as he writes from Windows).

    Thank you for the Edgy wireless script. It saved me loads of trouble.

    Re: HOWTO: Broadcom 4318 Wireless Cards

    can someone make a script of this please? I am not good at command line yet so most of the instructions here I know I will screw up on since I amdoing a fresh install of kubuntu ...
    Please?

    1. sudo apt-get install linux-headers-[YOUR_KERNEL_VERSION_HERE]
    2. sudo apt-get install make
    3. sudo apt-get install gcc
    4. Download acer_acpi here (I'm using acer_acpi myself and it works like a charm).
    5. Extract it (into ~/acer_acpi for example).
    6. cd ~/acer_acpi
    7. make
    8. sudo make install
    9. sudo modprobe acer_acpi
    10. sudo chmod 777 /proc/acpi/acer/wireless
    11. sudo echo "enabled: 1" > /proc/acpi/acer/wireless
    Now your card should really work. You can do
    dmesg | tail -n 6
    and if everything is correct you should get something like
    "[17182761.736000] acer_acpi: Wireless value 1"
    That means, that you've just enabled your wireless card and now it should find some networks (if any present). 1. sudo apt-get install linux-headers-[YOUR_KERNEL_VERSION_HERE]
    2. sudo apt-get install make
    3. sudo apt-get install gcc
    4. Download acer_acpi here (I'm using acer_acpi myself and it works like a charm).
    5. Extract it (into ~/acer_acpi for example).
    6. cd ~/acer_acpi
    7. make
    8. sudo make install
    9. sudo modprobe acer_acpi
    10. sudo chmod 777 /proc/acpi/acer/wireless
    11. sudo echo "enabled: 1" > /proc/acpi/acer/wireless
    Now your card should really work. You can do
    dmesg | tail -n 6
    and if everything is correct you should get something like
    "[17182761.736000] acer_acpi: Wireless value 1"

    Please take a look at the first post. There you will find packages ending with .tar.gz. They contain the script you need.

    Download the correct package (depends on wheter you have a 32 or 64-bit processor and whether you want to use network-manager), unpack and run the script.

    This was a new install, the only thing i did before running the script was blacklisting the bcm43xx driver supplied with Edgy, installing ndiswrapper with apt, then uninstalling when it didn't work. It was after those steps that I downloaded and ran the script for 64bit, rebooted and configured my wireless settings in network settings

    Re: HOWTO: Broadcom 4318 Wireless Cards

    I've run the script (using Kubuntu Edgy on an AMD64 system). My wireless light comes on, but the wireless function doesn't seem to work. Can anyone direct me to some help on this? Here's the requested output:

    Code:
    josh@****:~$ sudo iwlist eth1 scan
    eth1      No scan results
    josh@****:~$ sudo iwconfig
    lo        no wireless extensions.
    
    eth0      no wireless extensions.

    @Freestyle Skater: Try following the directions _exactly_ from the top. If that doesn't help, and if you want do to a fresh install of Ubuntu, and see if that helps, go ahead. It should work, but for some reason lots of people are getting the same error you are, and I don't know how to fix it...

    Re: HOWTO: Broadcom 4318 Wireless Cards

    Does this have to do with the script i wrote for edgy? btw compizwiz18 we should clean up the how to and the scripts. We need to collaberate so we can make a killer script that will work on both edgy and dapper.
