view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – In both 11.10 and 11.04 it's been impossible for me to get my laptop (a DELL XPS with the broadcom 4311 wifi adapter) I think i found the solution. This is for all the ubuntu users like me (noobius maximus) so please, no flaming by the super-experts. It basically involves deleting all wifi drivers, reinstalling some wifi drivers and then refreshing your wifi config info. Just giving ubuntu a fresh start for Wifi... You will need a wired connection to do this though. I'm going to walk through symptoms first them my solution: SYMPTOMS - "device not managed" message in (Hardware)
