When I use rfkill list, it gives me this:

Code:
0: acer-wireless: Wireless LAN
Soft blocked: yes
Hard blocked: no
Any brilliant ideas out there?
Instead of true or false put a 1. That's what I had to do on an Asus laptop. After that it worked without a problem.

you may have to roll back updates on the adapter's driver. not sure how you do that with Ubuntu and stop further updates on this particular device.

Same thing happened to me when I installed Suse on my Compaq laptop. It uses Atheros.

Didn't work. Laptop is an Acer Aspire 7551G-5056 with a Broadcom 43225 adapter.

I have no idea how to do it either.... Gonna try googling it, but this is getting annoying...

you could just try playing around with iwconfig and ifconfig

is the card listed with an ifconfig -a? does it say it has wireless extension with iwconfig? what mode is the card in when you check with iwconfig? can you bring it up with ifconfig wlan0 up?

basics are always good to play with for awhile before you start getting ahead of yourself
Kinda meh now...

http://www.broadcom.com/support/802.11/linux_sta.php It's probably using the non-sta drivers which have known issues with broadcom chips.

[edit] Errr, you can also just use module assistant.

sudo apt-get install module-assistant
m-a a-i broadcom-sta

BAM

Not seeing my card with ifconfig -a.

iwconfig says no wireless extensions for lo and eth0, but for eth1 it says this:
Code:
IEEE 802.11   Acess Point: Not-Associated
Link Quality: 5   Signal level: 0   Noise level: 0
Rx invalid nwid: 0  invalid crypt: 0  invalid misc:0
No idea what that means. ifconfig wlan0 up gives this:
Code:
wlan0: ERROR while getting interface flags: No such device
I'll try your thing in a bit, mushroomboy.

Edit: I get an error with "m-a a-i broadcom-sta"
Code:
Build of the package broadcom-sta-source failed! How do you wish to proceed?
VIEW
CONTINUE
STOP
Selecting VIEW gives me this:
Code:
QUILT_PATCHES=debian/patches \\

Still confused

On a wired connection, try using the terminal:
Code:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

Oh yeah, your going to need the nets to use module assistant. =P Otherwise you'll have to download the package and install it. You will need to blacklist some stuff too, there are a few conflicting modules:

b44
b43legacy
b43
brcm80211
brcmsmac
ssb

You'll need to blacklist those as well as make a new initramfs so that it loads at boot. Module Assistant does all this for you, that's why it is the easy way out.

I did use internet. Laptop was hardwired the whole time.
