Broadcom 4312 not automatically connect to wireless network


I just new to linux. I install ubuntu netbook remix 9.10 on my HP Mini 210 which comes with Broadccom 4312 wireless card. I have try to install te genuine from
And i used the Readme to install step by step

Finally, it works. But after I reboot, it seems the driver doesn't work. In the hardware driver, wl listed as the driver is currently not in use.

Then I have to redo those work to make the wireless work. How can I make it automatically work? Any help?

The Setup does not always load at boot time, even though I did them step by step under those instructions.

Thank you.

Did you add the line


to your /etc/modules file?
if you add the driver module to modules you wont have to use modprobe everytime you want to use wireless. I use the STA driver for my 4312 wireless adapter and it works fine (system is Debian)
