My wireless internet works fine on Windows but not on Ubuntu 10.10
From researching the problem, the best advice I have found was to install ndiswrapper, locate the .inf file and install it through that. I have done so and that seems to have done nothing. Then I heard that you were supposed to run the command:
All that did was give me an error message about how that action was prohibited (or some such).
I'm wondering if this is possible to fix on Ubuntu or if I will have to find something else.
Also, the wireless driver I am trying to use is bcmwl6 which funnily enough seemed to have a package on the boot cd to install it.
That package didn't work and just gave me and error message telling me there was a programming error in it.
I'm sorry I wasn't particularly detailed with the messages I was getting, this is because I am currently on Windows and finding those again would mean rebooting and losing this post. I can get them though if they are particularly needed. I know this seems to be a commonish problem but I haven't found a solution (yet) that has worked for me.
Help would be much appreciated.
EDIT: Never mind. I figured it out myself a different way
