What distro are you using? What is your wifi card?

Hello skykooler,

My wireless internal card is a broadcom 802.11 b/g. I have a external linksys wireless card that plugs into a card slot. I can access my wireless router though this card. I downloaded the linux ubuntu version. It will see my broadcom wireless internal card. but when it try's to install the drivers it fails. So I'm running through the external wireless plug in card at the moment.

Thanks,
Keith
