    Re: Dell 600m/12.04 wireless issue : "(firmware missing)"

    Thanks Hadaka,

    I ran the command in a terminal, but it's still showing "device not ready (firmware missing)"

    This is after a re-start and checking the "Additional Drivers." Usually they appear there and one must simply activate them.

    Isn't there a step-by-step troubleshooting guide for wireless driver issues?

    Anyway, I'll post the results for your command and then re-post the other data again.

    Re: Dell 600m/12.04 wirelessissue : "(firmware missing)"

    Hi, I see now you have 4306 [14e4:4324] rev 3 so you need the b43 driver

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install b43-fwcutter firmware-b43-installer
    Code:
    sudo modprobe b43

    Code:
    rfkill list all
    did you happen to press the Fn/F2 keys
