http://ubuntuforums.org – This problem is really annoying me :( Here is the situation I have installed Ubuntu 9.10 with Wubi and i use Windows 7 as well I have a HP Pavilion dv6-1020el It has a Broadcom BCM4312 card The card worked on Ubuntu 9.04 but on 9.10 just doesnt work by default :mad: The card works when using the Live CD Doesn't work when using the installed ubuntu OS I have no other means of internet access in using Ubuntu, but only via Wireless How to get this problem fixed ? anyone ? I tried removing the dkms package, then reinstalled it, so then i could install the bcmwl-kernel-source_5.10.91.9+bdcom-0ubuntu4_i386.deb I could get the above package installed successfully and then rebooted but still the card driver is not working :( In the Hardware Drivers, it only shows the B43 STA driver, and when i click the activate button and insert my root password it will just not activate it ! :mad: I am out of ideas, this problem has gotten me down :( I do not know what to do, so i thought anyone here would help me ! I be grateful a lot thank you guys :) (Hardware)
