You will have to enable your wired card again by doing sudo modprobe b I guess I could do things this way, but it’s less than ideal since my wife takes the laptop elsewhere fairly often.

This should go out as a critical update. Thank you for those clear and concise instructions.


So I downloaded all the necessary files and programs from your “How To” list and tried to manually install them, hoping that everything would go smoothly with all the terminal commands–NOT! I’m a bit of a beginner.

Then I tried your source at MS and although there no installation files included even the driver update function of the device manager wasnt working I was able to install the driver by just copying bcmwl6. And the network is now enabled I had to load the ndiswrapper module before ssb. You either want nidswrapper sys,inf or bcm43xx.

I’d like to provide vsta info for those who may have odd Broadcom drivers. It will help in figuring out what might be happening. It was a MAC addres filter on my router, everything seems to work just fine now. Wireless network cards for computers require control software to make them function firmware, capabilities.
