hi all,

one of the recent updates has destroyed my wireless. I can't get it back up.

When I try and opne the 'Windows Wireless Drivers' in the admin menu, the window shows up and then it just closes the window (crashes?). I tried running it from the cmd line and there are no errors.

Wifi-radar wont even open up. It at least gives an error if run from the cmd line:
---
sudo wifi-radar
dhclient3 --version 2>&1
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/sbin/wifi-radar", line 1414, in <module>
auto_profile_order = auto_profile_order.split( ',' )
AttributeError: 'list' object has no attribute 'split'
-----------
I tried going back to an older kernel (esc while booting into grub and choosing an older kernel (18,17,16...) but to no avail. Something has really fcked up on my system. Any ideas on this or what further info you need.?



I have the bcm43xx chipset and everything used to work fine until I updated today.

thanks for any help.

just reinstalling wifi-radar seemed to do it. yet, wireless is still down
