    Re: I have Clearwire ISP and can't get connected

    Forget about clearwire for the moment as that is not your issue. Tell us what your computer specs are. Brand & model of motherboard. Copy & paste: sudo lshw -C net into your terminal. It will give net interfaces with output like following example:
    rick@ricks-laptop:~$ sudo lshw -C net
    [sudo] password for rick:

    Of course the names will be different than what I have posted. This example was from my laptop.
    Here is an example from my desktop:

    In my previous post I had said I used 1394, oops, thats firewire. What I meant was the 3945 wireless. Hope I didn't confuse anyone with that.
    Anyhow, post the requested information then we'll have something to work with.

    Re: I have Clearwire ISP and can't get connected

    The BCM43xx and BCm44xx modules require different drivers. Here are three threads to walk you through this.

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=649237
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...=broadcom+4401
    These links are several years old so I'm not certain that you would still have to compile the 44xx drivers from source and the driver is a newer version that what is talked about in theses threads. But they will provide some insight, such as how to check your installation. Now part of this I'm just guessing on as it has been a while since I've had wireless and I never had the Broadcom module.
    Also, you need to activate the desired network in network manager. To the best of my knowledge only one can be activated at a given time.
    The other thing that I wanted to mention is that my modem is old; guess I was one of their first customers. Until I just now looked it up I have never seen a pci card like yours. On my modem you plug into the router or directly to the computer. I don't know if any of this is helping you or just mucking the water.

    PS: Don't forget that your wireless (eth1) is the BCM 4311. Your ethernet connection/interface (eth0) is BCM 4401. Big difference here. Just to narrow things down a bit, which one are you trying to connect through?
