What have you done? What have you tried? Have you tried Wicd? Its one of the best. For drivers have you checked out linuxwirless.org?

If you want help, your going to have to tell us what Linux distro you're using. Input.....we need input!!!!

I agree - more input required.

Distro (including version)
Wireless Card
Drivers you have tried (including version info)
Other (like does your computer have a wireless on/off button)

Input, Iiiiinput! (Johnny 5)

Have you happened to check if the driver released by BroadComm will work with your Card?

I have a BCM4328 and it works great in 64-bit Ubuntu.

If you haven't sorted it out ...maybe try PCLinuxOS - it comes with a few BCM drivers by default ...
