    Ubuntu won't go online

    With the exception of me running Windows 7 in the dual boot I am having the same problem. Here is what I get:

    uname -r

    @ttimmy58:

    Deactivate the Broadcom-STA driver, install the package linux-firmware-nonfree via cable connection and reboot.

    Re: dual boot w/Window XP Ubuntu not go online

    Thanks a bunch for the reply! How do I deactivate Broadcom-sta driver? As I am a newby I will probably need instructions getting and installing the firmware
