My Ethernet port doesn't work so, I cannot have a wired connection. I need to get the wireless card working on th Hp dv5215us laptop.

Please suggest if someone has been able to get it working on ubuntu 8.04.

Thanks in advance!

Here is a set of instructions for using ndiswrapper and the provided drivers instead of the normal Broadcomm driver (which apparently doesn't work well with your specific card):


Hope this helps.
