Hi all. I am almost 2 days into learning Ubuntu/Linux so I don't know much. After lots of research I finally installed the correct driver for my Broadcom PCI card. Now when I run the Additional Drivers it brings up "Broadcom STA wireless driver". I had read not to activate this...
I just installed Kubuntu 10.10 on my MacBook 3,1 and found no wireless connection. Using KPackageKit I activated Broadcom b43 because it had already been selected for me. When I subsequently tried to activate Broadcom STA, however, I was returned with an error. After reading Jockey log I removed the wrong driver and reinstalled all drivers so that I can activate the correct one.
Hi,just installed ubuntu 9.10....however something's wrong.... it seems unable to activate my wireless driver (which is non-open source)Broadcom ST3.....when i go to "Hardware Drivers" and click on activate Broadcom ST3, ubuntu simply asks for a password and then does nothing! pls help!
thanks in advance
It's imposible to activate any Hardware Drivers (proprietary)
I just installed ubuntu, so i don't see why this would happen.
I haved installed ubuntu and activated drivers before.
But this time, just as soon as i click the ''activate'' button, it hangs in there, for ever, and for ever, for ever...
I have a dell inspiron 1525 32bits with ubuntu 11.04 gnome 2.32.1, processor architecture i686 and upgraded the kernel from 2.6.38-8 to 2.6.39. Everything appears to be fine except that I no longer have wireless. I tried to install the driver with 'Additional Drivers' and I see that the Broadcom STA wireless driver is no activated.
Since I do not have a computer of my own at the moment (using my family's computer) I do not have the ability to install Ubuntu on a hard disk so I'm planning on just running it from a USB for now. However, I cannot get wireless working on this USB (12.04.1).
