    BCM4318 - Tried everything..

    Hi everyone,

    I have a problem on my Acer TravelMate 2400 with Ubuntu 12.10 on the BCM 4318 wireles card, i tried every guide, installed STA drivers, b43 drivers ecc, but still no progress in getting wifi working, the b44 driver ( lan ) is working good, and I'm now writhing from my Acer attached to my LAN network, but i also want to use the wifi around my house.
    What can I do ? I'm confused, I don't know what to do..

    We see no wireless interface at all. This is getting most interesting! Let's see:
    Code:
    iwconfig
    cat /etc/network/interfaces
