One thing that I wanted to get to work was my wireless network on my Dell D830 laptop with Ubuntu. The first hurdle was that I had turned off the wireless network switch. Took me a while to figure that out 😦
Unfortunately afterwards it still didn’t work. A
lspci revealed that I have a Broadcom BCM4327 wireless card. A search on Google showed that Ubuntu Hardy Beta still has a problem with the order in which modules get loaded.
When I do the following commands I can get it to work:
sudo rmmod ssb
sudo rmmod ndiswrapper
sudo modprobe ndiswrapper
sudo modprobe ssb
I think that for now I’ll do these steps manually (since I need wireless LAN only occasionally) and hope they will fix this problem for the final release.
Update: it seems that this got fixed. I don’t have to do these steps manually to get my WLAN to work.
