View Full Version : [ubuntu] DELL Inspiron 6400 Wireless (FN+F2) not working

October 11th, 2012, 02:15 PM
Hi guys, just installed ubuntu, went to system settings > additional drivers, I then enabled and restarted Broadcom STA proprietary driver. Currently 'the driver is activated and currently in use', however I can't turn on the wireless and connect. I only get internet through ethernet.

Total noob, would appreciate any help. THanks!!
