It's been days of trying to work through forum posts trying various approaches, but I still can't get wireless to work since upgrading to 9.1.
I upgraded from 9.04, but had various problems, so I did a clean install of 9.1 from a usb stick.
I have only the broadcom STA wireless driver installed. (No b43 or ssb) In hardware drivers I get the "driver is activated but not in use" message. Have tried removing, rebooting, installing, rebooting, etc. to no avail. Have removed the bcmwl package in synaptic and installed again. No luck.
Seem to be some conflict with lib82011 -- but I can't remember where I saw that message...
Network controller is BCM4312 802.11b/g (rev 02)
Ethernet controller is RTL8101E/RTL8102E PDI Express Fast... (rev 02)
lshw -C network, first line, shows
BTW, all is well on my Dell 1330 running karmic (Pro/wireless (Golan) network connection).
