    Cannot get Linksys/Broadcom BCM43XG (rev 01) to work in 8.04

    Hi Folks,

    I am trying to get my Linksys/Broadcom PCI wireless card:

    lspci | grep Broadcom\ Corporation02:03.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM43XG (rev 01)

    To work in 8.04.

    I have followed the following instructions including all of the fixes:
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wi...f971ca757b2851

    Unfortunately I still do not “see” my card.

    When I do the “start over” fix I get the following error at:
    tom@Mythbuntu:~/bcm43xx$ sudo ndiswrapper -i bcmwl5.inf

    couldn't open bcmwl5.inf: No such file or directory at /usr/sbin/ndiswrapper line 219.

    I have spend the evening trying to get the card working and may have really trashed 8.04 by trying every todo I could find...

    I still cannot see my wireless card ;-(

    All info GREATLY appreciated!

    Thanks,
    Tom

    you might need to connect your pc to a wired connection.. as many steps require internet.
