I'm a new poster and will try to keep this brief. I'm running on 11.04 on my Dell Inspiron 1764, and so far haven't been able to achieve internet access through either a direct wired connection or wireless.
Wireless network controller: Broadcom BCM4312 802.11b/g LP-PHY (rev 01)
Ethernet controller: Realtek RTL8101E/RTL8102E PCI Express Fast Ethernet controller (rev 02)
Fixes I've tried so far:
Wired - Attempted to install the r8168 driver and remove the r8169 driver as is done in this thread:
Wireless - managed a fleeting wired connection yesterday, during which time I installed the Broadcom STA driver through Additional Drivers.
Also attempted to install the firmware-b43-lpphy-installer, following these instructions:
but to no avail (under Synaptic Package Manager, the firmware-b43-lpphy-installer still remains unchecked after I install it through terminal)
If you need any terminal output just let me know. Thanks in advance for the help!
