    Great; we'll have to find a fix.
    Now I've managed to install Broadcom STA wireless driver...not sure how I did it
    How did you do it? Did you compile the version you downloaded from Broadcom? If so, we'll probably need to remove it and start again.

    .....don't know. I followed some the links around here and tried doing stuff. But I was working pretty blind as I was not sure what I was doing I'd type in the commands and then return to trying to start my wireless. Sadly clueless.
    Ok, so I should remove the Broadcom STA and reinstall it? What are the lines I need to type in?
    Thanks again for your help and patience. You've been kind to take my idiocy on as a project

    No worries; we were all beginners at one time. Even me and even Linus! Let's dig deeper:
    Code:
    sudo dpkg -s ndiswrapper-common
    If it what we hope it is, it will say, in part:
    Package: ndiswrapper-common
    Status: install ok installed

    Re: Wireless connect w/12.04 on AspireOne D-250

    A bit of progress....

    Package `ndiswrapper-common' is not installed and no info is available.
    Use dpkg --info (= dpkg-deb --info) to examine archive files,
    and dpkg --contents (= dpkg-deb --contents) to list their contents.

    then ran sudo apt-get install ndiswrapper-common and I get:

    Description: Common scripts required to use the utilities for ndiswrapper
    Some vendors do not release specifications of the hardware or provide a
    Linux driver for their wireless network cards. This project implements
    Windows kernel API and NDIS (Network Driver Interface Specification) API
    within Linux kernel. A Windows driver for wireless network card is then
    linked to this implementation so that the driver runs natively, as though
    it is in Windows, without binary emulation.
    .
    This package contains wrapper scripts to call out to the proper
    versions of whatever -utils-X.X package is installed.

    I guess that's what I get for trying to answer 27 posts while on vacation: confused! Sorry about my error. Please try:
    Code:
    sudo dpkg -s bcmwl-kernel-source
    No matter what the answer, do not install anything further until we examine the result.

    Re: Wireless connect w/12.04 on AspireOne D-250

    Ah, good. That's the STA driver we want...maybe.

    Your Broadcom 4312 is one of those devices that has at least three methods to get it going. STA is one and evidently, not ideal. Hook up the ethernet temporarily and do:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install firmware-b43-lpphy-installer
    sudo modprobe -r wl
    sudo modprobe b43
    Any improvement? If so, we'll need to do some corrective surgery.

    nix! No improvement. I first line installed firmware b43 etc.
    When I ran the next two modprob lines, Nothing happened...or at least not that was evident
