    Lightbulb solution: just on-click , dell inspiron 1300 .. ,broadcom, b43

    Hello everybody ..

    I think I have to help some people who tired, like me, just to get their WIFI working ,, so i wrote simple shell .. and i attached also 'how to' pictures inside the archive ..

    This will work with laptops have same as Inspiron-1300 hardware.

    Using those :
    - b43-fwcutter-012.tar.bz2
    - broadcom-wl-4.80.53.0.tar.bz2

    and after that writing some codes to /etc/rc.local

    archive is big because of pictures .. so i can not attached here ..

    http://www.2shared.com/file/6545432/...1300_wifi.html

    hope this will help ...

    Thank you very very very much for this -- I spent hours trying to get the wireless driver to work myself when I installed Ubuntu, but this took less than a minute and worked immediately!

    You are absolutely amazing!!! You are a god among men!

    Seriously, I was so pissed to find out that when I installed the beta I didn't have wireless. The only way I can connect is through wireless so I searched for over an hour to find a way to easily download the files through my Vista partition and then get them over to my linux one. I was about to give up hope when i ran across this. Downloaded it, ran it and in less than 60 seconds I am online!

    Thank you so much. You certainly made my week!

    Thanks Both my sister and I have broadcom wifi cards. Luckily we both have access to the net via ethernet and so can install through the restricted drivers dialogue, but this will be a great backup tool. Cheers!
