Unhappy Wifi Broadcom 4312 not working in Ubuntu after installing another system


Hello Everyone,
I have following problem:

I have Broadcom 4312 wifi card and I installed Ubuntu 11.04 some time ago. After that I installed wifi STA driver via System > Administration > Aditional drivers. Everything was working fine.

Yesterday I installed Fedora 15 on another disk partition. I spent the whole day making the wifi work in fedora and I finally solved it by b43-fwcutter etc.

Today, I turned on Ubuntu and figured out that wireless is not working! I reinstalled the aditional drivers, reinstalled bcmwl-kernel-source, rebooted several times etc. But I still cant make the wireless working in ubuntu again.

Could anyone please give me any clues about my problem? Thank you in advance

Did you change the security settings in your wi-fi router perhaps? I can't think of any other reason why what you do in Fedora will affect what happens in Ubuntu.

Problem solved

I am sorry for bothering, but a few hours after that I turned the pc on and everything worked normally again. I dont understand how, but it works and I hope it will.

No bother at all!
Sometimes it's the network/ISP that's the problem! It's worse when using a mobile network because you never know where the fault is!
