    10.04 no wired/wireless connection, Dell Inspiron 1520

    I spent all night trying to fix it on my own, but i failed.
    On Ubuntu i don't have possibility to download anything by "sudo apt-get install xxx" because i don't have connection. Im writing now from second laptop.

    I have Dell Inspiron 1520

    Re: 10.04 no wired/wireless connection

    It's probably easy to fix, but before doing so I recommend that you do a fresh install of 12.04.2 or 12.10, as 10.04 has only one month of support left.

    You mean you don't want Ubuntu 12.04 or 12.10.

    Re: 10.04 no wired/wireless connection

    I have cd with Xubuntu 12.04/10 and there's same problem.
    I'll install 12.04 version 'cause it's "stable" and post results here.

    Re: 10.04 no wired/wireless connection

    Yes, you need to install drivers for this card regardless of version.

    There are plenty of threads, for example

    Re: 10.04 no wired/wireless connection

    But how can i install them without internet connection on xubuntu?

    EVERYONE say to type this

    sudo apt-get remove --purge bcmwl-kernel-source
    sudo apt-get install linux-firmware-nonfree
    But it's impossible for me.

    Oh, sorry. I didn't notice that the wired connection didn't work either.

    I have never seen that. Leaving the thread for a more experienced one to answer.

    Re: 10.04 no wired/wireless connection, Dell Inspiron 1520

    Hi,
    Download the b43 zip file to a flash drive then drag and drop the file to your ubuntu desktop. Right-click it and select Extract Here. Open a terminal and do:
    Code:
    sudo mkdir /lib/firmware/b43
    sudo cp Desktop/b43/* /lib/firmware/b43
    sudo rmmod -f b43
    sudo rmmod -f ssb
    sudo modprobe b43
    Thanks
