    Dell Lattitute D620 wifi not work with ubuntu 11.04

    I just bought a used laptop - Dell Lattitute D620,installed 32bit Ubuntu 11.04 gnome,found my wifi is not working.
    'Additional Driver' show that restricted driver is activated & in use,but I switch my wifi hardware button to 'on',the light didn't on,and there's only 'Auto eth0' sho in network manager,NO wireless option.........
    How to fix it?
    Found a sticker at the bottom of laptop showing my wifi chip is Broadcom brcm94311mcg.

    +1, wifi doesn't work on my d620 either. Worked fine on 10.04 and 10.10. I guess I'll be downgrading...

    PCI (sysfs) shows up for a few seconds and then I'm dropped back to the shell prompt. No other output...
