I have also checked the

I have also installed the
aircrack-ng
and

but I have the same problem.

I am kindly asking you to help me solve my problem, If you think this problem is because of my hardware can you suggest a good model for laptop D520 (DELL Latitude).

Hello,

The Broadcom Wifi card drivers are strictly proprietary, however with ndiswrapper you can strip the firmware from the proprietary drivers (the firmware belongs to you, the owner) and you *might* get your card to work. I had mine working on Ubuntu for awhile but in the course of multiple distribution samples, I ended up with an Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG (Calexico2) card that is much more compatible.

If you want to use ndiswrapper, here are the instructions (they're for Ubuntu but apply generally and I am all in favor of *not* trashing good equipment).
