    Does it try to connect? What are your symptoms?

    Re: Ubuntu 12.04 Broadcom Sta driver installation failed

    It does not try to connect nothing...last night I was getting the firmware not ready error...now I don't even get that...is there a step by step guide that I could follow to get my wireless working on a Dell laptop?

    Re: Ubuntu 12.04 Broadcom Sta driver installation failed

    There is no step-by-step because there are several different wireless cards supplied with Dell laptops. In order to figure out what to do, we need to follow a diagnostic process like we are here. Does your wireless card scan?
    Code:
    sudo iwlist eth2 scan
    When you click the Network Manager icon, do you see your network? Can you click it and try to connect? Are you asked for a password?

    Output of the command that you asked me to run is as follows:

    rishi@ubuntu:~$ sudo iwlist eth2 scan
    [sudo] password for rishi:
    eth2 Interface doesn't support scanning.


    Last night I seen it briefly but I do not see it any more. I run my Ubuntu installation from a pen drive. Could that be the reason?

    I doubt the pen drive is a problem. Let's see:
    Code:
    rfkill list all
    dmesg | grep -e eth -e wl
    iwconfig
    Thanks.

    I wonder if Network Manager is disabling your wireless because you have a working connection; that is the iPhone. Please detach the iPhone and do:
    Code:
    sudo modprobe wl
    iwconfig
    Is eth2 back in place? Any interesting errors or messages?
    Code:
    dmesg | grep wl

    This all looks perfect! Does it scan?
    Code:
    sudo iwlist eth2 scan
    Are there any messages here?
    Code:
    dmesg | grep eth2
    sudo cat /var/log/syslog | grep eth2
    Thanks.
