Default broadcom 4311

I am having trouble getting my Broadcom 4312 to connect.* I downloaded the driver and the fwcutter and ran both.* I can ping the 4312 and the 4312 is listed as a device.* Any suggestions?**

Thanks


Gary

We will need a little more information on your situation to help you.
Did you just install Ubuntu? If so, did you hardwire to an Internet
connection and download all the updates for the new install? Also, if
you could give us any errors that you may be receiving that would be
helpful as well. Let us know.

I am installing Ubuntu for the first time on the HP.* It's on my Dell and works well.* I am leaving for Mexico tomorrow and will try to find a hardwire connection there but that will take a while.* SO if there are other alternatives to a hard wire connection that I can try this evening let me know.

Thanks for the prompt reply.

Unfortunately not. Your best bet at the very least would be to try to
hardwire to an internet connection and use the hardware drivers under
administration to download and install the drivers and fwcutter
automatically, but that generally doesn't work unless you have
downloaded updates. So either way, your best bet will be a hardwired
connection. Sorry.

Thanks- will get back to this when I can.* We are going to rent an apartment so if there is high speed (likely) and if it is wired then I'll be able to update ubuntu.

If this is a new install (as you mentioned), you might have better luck
installing wicd instead of trying to get it to work with Network
Manager. If you had more time then I suggest troubleshooting the issue
(particularly since you can ping the device), but since you are looking
to get something up and running quickly I suggest wicd.

http://wicd.sourceforge.net/
http://wicd.sourceforge.net/download.php
[Installing Wicd in Ubuntu]

I'm assuming that you have installed intrepid, if so change from 'hardy' to:

deb http://apt.wicd.net intrepid extras

Don't forget to add the signing key:

$ wget -q http://apt.wicd.net/wicd.gpg -O- | sudo apt-key add -

If wicd doesn't work for you (it should), you can always easily revert
back to Network Mangager.

Not sure it I installed intrepid.* I used a cd I ordered a while back.* The cd I made from a download the first time I installed Ubuntu (on a Dell) I had problems with the cd and the install so I ordered a cd for the next time, which was just a few days ago after I bought the HP.* How do*I tell if I installed Intrepid?

My version is 8.04.* i looked up intrepid and it's 8.10 so my version is old and requires updating.

I had this same problem and was able to solve it with the windows wireless
utility, compat-wireless driver, and activating the driver in the
proprietary drivers area of Hardware Drivers found in
system/administration


Hope this helps.

No. It isn't old, it is the LTS (Long Term Support) version & the same
that I run on nearly all of my systems. 8.04 (hardy) is just fine.
wicd will work just fine with that version as well & in fact I have a
broadcom card working on my laptop (hardy) with it.
