View Full Version : [ubuntu] Broadcom card not getting Ip address after upgrade to Jaunty

July 8th, 2009, 07:22 PM

I have a HP Pavillion with a Broadcom 4318 wireless card. Today I have upgraded from Intrepid to Jaunty and the card is not getting an IP assigned anymore everytime it connects to the network. I use automatic DHCP. Under Intrepid the card worked flawlessly using ndiswrapper; I have checked the card configuration and nothing has changed during the upgrade. The kernel in use is 2.6.28-11-generic. Below I post all the other details.

Help! ;)
