    I don't mind, I'm sure you're desperate as I am to get this thing working
    Good luck to you too, unfortunately I'm still offline

    @Peripetilja--

    Let's see what's going on under the hood. Please run and post:
    Code:
    dmesg | grep -e brcm -e wlan
    sudo cat /var/log/syslog | grep -e etwork -e wlan | tail -n20
    We are trying to capture what wireless is doing, so, for the second command, please be sure the ethernet is disconnected.

    Re: Proprietary wireless driver problems

    Hi, I switched the switch. Tried before but nothing happened. What was the problem? Conflicting drivers?
