Home Learn Linux Linux Answers Drivers How to install a Broadcom 802.11 WLAN driver on Ubuntu 11.04?
Answers
  • You do not need to install a driver for your router to work.
    What you need is the proper protocol to connect to it, like TCP/IP.

    Try accessing your router from the browser and try pinging the router's IP address. Simple, ubuntu is not receiving DHCP configurations. You have to set this up in "Network Connections".

  • Hope this 32 bit and download the driver: http://ie.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/restricted/b/bcmwl/bcmwl-kernel-source_5.60.48.36+bdcom-0ubuntu5_i386.deb
    Now remove the previous drivers in Ubuntu and install the above one and restart the computer.
    If you have connect through a wired network, then download the following and install it as:
    http://packages.ubuntu.com/en/maverick/all/firmware-b43-installer/download
    and
    http://packages.ubuntu.com/en/maverick/all/firmware-b43-installer/download
