    Looking back at post #5, there is a line about a Broadcom 4318 (that I missed the first time).

    Here is an ancient HOWTO for the 4318 (if that is really Richard's wireless interface, post #1978 looks like the most recent info):

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...97102&page=198

    According to the following page the Broadcom 4318 should show up as either:

    "14e4:4318" or "14e4:4319" under lspci:

    http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drivers/b43

    Also, here is an old thread that had an "offline" install for the "b43" Broadcom chipsets:

    lspci | grep work

    lsmod
    lsusb
    ifconfig
    iwconfig
    Lately I've seen more firmware issues with the "older" Broadcoms (like the 4311 & 4312). It seems to me that the 10.xx versions of Ubuntu are having a difficult time with some of the "older" firmware recently- possibly the kernel has been "tweaked" in this vicinity.

    Also, have you tried any of the "proprietary" hardware drivers like the Broadcom STA driver? The Broadcom 4321 in my HP laptop seems to prefer the "STA" driver, but it also worked fine with the "b43" proprietary hardware driver too from what I remember from long ago (somewhere around Ubuntu 8.10-9.04).

    That looks to be a Broadcom 4318 "Airforce One" wireless unit. I haven't worked on one of those personally, but you might have a kernel module conflict with the b43, b44 and ssb modules all loaded as shown by that lsmod command...

    You might need to blacklist one or more of those modules in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
    , but I'm not sure what a working 4318 setup is supposed to look like.

    ok I have done this on my computer that I am typing on right now and it has the same card. So some thing happened in the extract part we need to re-do it. so
    Code:
    cd /lib/firmware
    then
    Code:
    sudo -s
    then
    Code:
    tar -xzf b43-all-fw.tar_.gz
    then
    Code:
    exit
    Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men, even when they exercise influence and not authority
