    which version WILL work easily with Dell wireless 11350 mini pci?

    Hi, I had to reinstall and was having too many issues with the Dell wirelesss 1350 mini PCI aka truemobile 1350, BCM4350 (rev3). with ver 12.10 on Dell inspiron 9100. I need to use the B43 driver.
    Is there any version that will install easily?
    Thank You.
    EDIT: Title should read Dell wireless 1350

    IF your device uses b43, and we don't necessarily know that without additional diagnosis, any and all versions are equally suitable. This driver requires firmware that's pretty easy to install after installation.
    Code:
    $ modinfo b43
    filename:       /lib/modules/3.5.0-26-generic/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/b43/b43.ko
    firmware:       b43/ucode9.fw
    firmware:       b43/ucode5.fw
    firmware:       b43/ucode16_mimo.fw
    firmware:       b43/ucode15.fw
    firmware:       b43/ucode14.fw
    firmware:       b43/ucode13.fw
    firmware:       b43/ucode11.fw

    You could try plugging in an ethernet cable and do an update then check 'Additional Drivers' for the B43 driver. Enable it. You can also install it manually by installing b43-fwcutter and firmware-b43-installer from the repositories.

    And as chilli says, if your card uses the b43 driver ...
