Another wireless problem: unable to detect wireless networks with BCM4306
On my old laptop now runs Xubuntu 10.04. Everything works fine, except for the wireless network. When using the live cd it detected my network card (Broadcom 4306), installed it and I could see all networks including my own. Now that I have Xubuntu installed all of a sudden, after a few days, it does not detect networks anymore. Needless to say, I can't connect to any network whatsoever except for when I plug in my ethernet cable.
I checked everything and there seem to be no problems.... the hardware runs just fine, software is installed through jockey-gtk and I can manually dis- and enable the adapter. I have found no clues in the system diagnostics (lsmod, lspci and the other usual tools report no errors). I am at a loss here, and close to pulling my hair out.
Minor detail: there does not seem to be any b43 firmware package in the repositories, might that be a problem??
Anyway, I would GREATLY appreciate any help. Thank you.
