I would be very grateful of some help.

I have been fighting to get wireless networking going on my HP CQ40-101TU with Broadcom BCM4312 for a couple of weeks. I have read at least 10 sets of instructions on the topic and keep ending with the same results. I am running 8.10 and have attempted to use the native drivers. the STA drivers and the ndiswrapper with the same results. I can get the drivers and associations appearing in the command line queries but not in network manager.

Thanks very much.

Here is my current config:

Are you saying that you are able to see wireless sites from the command line, but not from Network Manager?

Sorry I wasn't clear about that, I cannot see wireless networks in either the command line or using network manager.
