    Question problems installing a Broadcom BCM4311

    Hello everyone,
    I am quite nw using linux but not completely... some time ago, I used to have an Xubuntu OS, and already there I had problems with my wireless card, however, thanks to some of you guys, we managed to solve it and, finally, it worked.
    Now, I have a similar problem with my lubuntu (I changed because Xubuntu seemed quite slow), I don't know how to install the drivers, but it should work once done. And, unfortunately, I don't find the original post where I asked it the first time.
    I hope you can help me.
    Thank you so much!

    There are some problems like this reported with the b43 driver and BCM4311. If you use 12.04lts(?) with the 3.8 quantal kernel you could try the 3.2 precise kernel and look if this issue remains or not.
