Hi, casual user of Ubuntu. Been going since 10.10 on my Acer Aspire 5742. Currently running Oneiric 64 bit. Each time I've reinstalled or upgraded since 10.10 I've had to run a fix from here
And it enabled the fn keys for brightness and wireless. The wireless is indicated by an LED.
This time on Oneiric the brightness controls were fixed but the wireless was not.
The broadcom driver shows up as installed and functional, the LED for turning on the wireless cannot be turned on. The wireless works fine in Windows.
Help please? I really do need this laptop for work around and about and I really don't want to have to boot into windows to work.
