    Question Help Installing Wireless card on Dell Inspiron E1505 with Ubuntu

    Ok, the problem is that I can´t install the driver for my Wireless card, so I can´t connect to wireless networks. I´ve already read some tutorials on this but it still doesn´t work. I´ve made a partition for ubuntu and I still have a partition with windows XP. Is there any solution for this problem?
    Thanks for your help.

    Anyone have any luck with this? I think it's a broadcom card. I seem to be having the same problem.

    Did you try to install b43-fwcutter? I too have a Dell Inspiron with Broadcom Wireless card and got my wireless working using this driver.
