    new install of ubuntu 12.04 lts on DELL LATITUDE D610 - WLAN Issue

    I have installed 12.04 on a DELL LATITUDE D610 but cannot get the wireless card to enable. I have tried to install the drivers "bcwml5.inf" with no success.

    below is the output of lshw -C network

    Please temporarily hook up the ethernet and do:
    sudo apt-get install linux-firmware-nonfree
    Reboot and let us have your report.
