Ok this worked for me on Hp nx6325
Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11a/b/g (rev 01)
But i had to search n struggle a lot.wheww. So to make it easier for rest of you, here is the guide.
I used ndiswrapper because b43-fwcutter doesnt work for me. Installing ndiswrapper like i did in Ubuntu 7.10 gutsy didnt work.
Here are the steps i followed:
Firstly, connect to internet using wired connection, and remove the b43-fwcutter package.
#sudo aptitude remove b43-fwcutter
2)Now follow the procedure as we used in gutsy to install ndiswrapper. Just skip the blacklisting part.
(Here are the steps how i did.
1)Download ndiswrapper from Synaptic
* System -> Administration -> Synaptic Package Manager
* Search for ndiswrapper
* Download "ndiswrapper-utils-1.9" and "ndiswrapper-common"
2)Get windows drivers and install them
* A) Download and extract windows drivers to a folder of your choice.
* Install them in ndiswrapper:
sudo ndiswrapper -i /location_of_your_wireless_driver/bcmwl5.inf
* Check to see if hardware found
sudo ndiswrapper -l
3)Setup ndiswrapper to load driver (and itself) at startup
* Edit the following file:
sudo gedit /etc/modules
* Add a line which says:
3)After you are done, run
#sudo gedit /etc/init.d/ndiswrapperfix.sh
and paste the following
modprobe -r b44
modprobe -r b43
modprobe -r b43legacy
modprobe -r ssb
modprobe -r ndiswrapper
into the file. Save and close (It will stop causing ssb and ndiswrapper interference)
#cd /etc/init.d/ && sudo chmod 755 ndiswrapperfix.sh
#sudo update-rc.d ndiswrapperfix.sh defaults
Restart and enjoy your wireless.I am enjoying hope u ll too.
