    Question Need help getting Broadcom BCM4401 to work

    The title says it all- the sticky for broadcom doesn't seem to cover any 44 models, so I'm hoping you guys can help me out. At the moment, I'm not getting anything- no visible networks, no nothing- and I haven't been able to get it to work in earlier versions of ubuntu (I'm running Hardy right now.)
    Here's some info (please pardon the mess):

    I can't really help you with your wireless issue, but I can try to point you in another direction. The b44 driver is actually for your wired card. That appears to be working (eth0). Your wireless is the Intel:
