Hi,
I have a packard bell bg45-u-300 and until recently i had an azurewave AW-GE780 which worked great in linux but since im dual booting with OSX i needed to replace this, i decided on a dw1395 dell card based on the broadcom 4312 v1 chipset.

In linux i installed networkmanager applet 0.7.0 and had to mess with a few drivers to get the old wireless to work but now I have installed my new card, it recognised it fine and installed the restricted driver, it is seen by ubuntu and seems to be working, it will occasionally see networks but whatever i do it just will not connect!
If i try and connect to my university wireless either unecrypted or using leap is says attempting to connect to wireless for ages then gives up!
