View Full Version : [ubuntu] Install Wireless without having wired connection

June 6th, 2008, 01:06 AM
I just installed Ubuntu 8.04. I went to the wireless network manager, but it wouldn't let me add or find a network. I ran a Hardware Test and it detected that I have a Broadcom Wireless Card BCM4306. I then checked the Hardware Drivers and it showed no proprietary drivers installed (blank list).

Now I do not have access to an ethernet connection, however, I do have wireless under Win XP. How would I go about getting my wireless to work?
