I have just done adual boot on my Dell Mini 1010 and cannot get a wireless connectionusing Ubantu but can with Windows XP. The fixed wire internetconnection works fine for both.
I have tried using'Additional Drivers' but get an error message – failed to install.
The systems info (when in Windows) gives :-
Dell Wireless 1397WLAN Mini Card Version 220.127.116.11
Chipset BCM4315/BCM 22062000
Putting lspci code( when in Ubantu) gives:-
Network ControllerBroadcom BCM 4312 802.11 b/g LP-PHY (rev 01)
I have downloadedthe Synaptic Package Manager but not used the code 'bcmwl-kernal-source ' as yet as there are conflicting comments aboutthis in the numerous threads - I have tried to work through these butthere does not appear to be a satisfactory solution that I can see.
Can someone give aclear method of approach on this – I do like the Ubantu concept !
