On my Acer Aspire 3001CLi there is a built-in broadcom card. I have it working with ndiswrapper, and when it works it works well. But occasionally, daily at least, it goes down completely. My kWi-Fi Manager doesn't always see it, but the MEPIS OS center always controlls it best. That, however, cannot always seem to start the card, even if it was just working moments ago.
Is there a good command to try? I tried
ifconfig wlan0 down
if config wlan0 up
and it brings it down just fine. but not back up... in the mean time, M/OS center doesn't change from still being up, and kWi-Fi still sees it as down....
I am looking for a solid way to run this card. Any ideas?
