Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4306 802.11b/g Wireless LAN Controller (rev 03)

~$ iwconfig
lo no wireless extensions.
eth0 no wireless extensions.

Thank you for any help.

Installed 11.04 with the Upgrade Manager over a 10.04 installation. WHICH HAD BEEN WORKING FLAWLESSLY! Dell Inspiron 1525. Same output from iwconfig. My laptop has Broadcom BCM4312 wireless chip.
