No Sound/Wireless on Gateway 7326 GZ Laptop

Hi all,

I wish I were a programmer so I could create a driver to make all devices work under Linux, until then I have to report to you my pain in trying to configure the followings under these distribution : UBUNTU-Breezy Badger 5.10 ; Fedora Core 4 ; Mandriva 2006;

my Wireless integrated card (not working on all three flavors)
01:09.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4306 802.11b/g Wireless LAN Controller (rev 03)

my Sound card (not working on all three flavors)
(00:1f.5 Multimedia audio controller: Intel Corporation 82801DB/DBL/DBM (ICH4/ICH 4-L/ICH4-M) AC'97 Audio Controller (rev 03)

my Modem (Not Working under Mandriva 2006)
00:1f.6 Modem: Intel Corporation 82801DB/DBL/DBM (ICH4/ICH4-L/ICH4-M) AC'97 Mode m Controller (rev 03)

I followed all instructions regarding installing 'Ndiswrapper' ...etc. for a whole week on all the distributions not a chance.

I still want to quit windows but I also want to have wireless access and Sound. I turned to you today to tell me what else to do. In the meantime I am doing a dual boot with Windows XP and Mandriva 2006.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions and have a blessed day !!!

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
