November 15th, 2009, 02:11 AM
I have the below wireless card on my hp zd8000 laptop with ubuntu 8.04 and have problems getting it to connect to my linksys wireless-g router. Please help.

0b:03.0 Network controller [0280]: Broadcom Corporation BCM4306 802.11b/g Wireless LAN Controller [14e4:4320] (rev 03)

The wired network connection works fine. Below is some information, but I should admit that I am not very familiar with ubuntu. The wireless is configured for "mixed, channel 6, wpa2 personal aes"

I am able to see my wireless AP from the laptop, but it does not get an IP

Output from iwconfig

eth0 no wireless extensions.

wmaster0 no wireless extensions.
