I've installed Ubuntu 7.04 from scratch on my Dell Latitude D400. The install went great but I've really struggled to get Wireless working. Out of the box my internal Wireless card did not work. I have a Broadcom chipset 4306. Digging around I found a great doc on the Ubuntu help site.
I went through the install procedure for ndiswrapper and that seem to work fine.
I can now click on the networking icon at the top of my screen and see my wireless router by name but it will not connect and get an IP address.
bhawk@D400:~$ iwlist eth1 scanning
