Does anyone know how to set up a Dell Inspiron 8200's Truemobile 1180 internall wireless? I think it's technically a broadcom BCM4301 device. It's listed in my control center. Here is the info in the Control Center:
Vendor: Broadcom Corporation
Bus identification: 14e4:4301:1028:407
Location on the bus: 2:3:0
Description: BCM4301 802.11b
Media class: NETWORK_OTHER
When I try to run the config tool, it asks me what type of connection. I, of course, choose wireless, and choose the orinoco.cs driver, and when I click next, it loops back to the beginning! What the?! Does anyone have any suggestions for a linux newb?

Well, I also answered the new thread you started, but in case that one gets locked, I'll answer here too. I'm using the bcmwl5 drivers that I downloaded from Broadcom when I installed ndiswrapper.
The error your seeing is because ndiswrapper can't read (or maybe find) the bcmwl5.inf file. Check that the file is actually in that location and is readable. It also may be an ownership issue. If your running ndiswrapper as a normal user and the file is owned by root, that may be the problem. So check file existance, location, permission and ownership.
DO NOT REPLY TO THIS THREAD, I accidentally double-posted, if you lock, please lock this one. Again, plase don't reply to this thread, and have mercy on the newb that is me. Check out this thread instead:
