    Dell Inspiron 1520 - Ubuntu 12.04 LTS not picking up any internet

    So when I installed ubuntu, my wireless and wired connection stopped working, I am extremeally frustrated at the inability of Broadcom to make open source drivers that can work out of the box.

    Do you think this would be compatable? I've done some research on Dell's website.

    In case someone finds the thread:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install linux-firmware-nonfree
    and a reboot solves the problem (if we are dealing with a Broadcom BCM4311).
