Hi! I am new to Ubuntu and I have a problem with my broadcom 4318 card. I have been reading literally hundreds of posts regarding the broadcom 43xx card (since many people seem to have problems with those cards), tried quite a few things, but I am still unable to make the wireless work.
From what I was able to gather, I think it might have to do with this "network: UNCLAIMED" message I get whenever I run the 'lshw -C network' command on my terminal.
The whole string is:

Am I doing something wrong? Does anyone know how I could "claim" it? As I said, I read a few posts on the issue but none of them seemed to address mine fully. Also, I have read there is a way of doing it with the NdisWrapper, but since it said it should only be used as last resort, I have refrained from using it so far.
Any help will be fondly appreciated!!
