Ubuntu: Still no wireless after b43 with Dell Inspiron 1525 (Ubuntu 12.04)


So I followed the instructions here http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1974006 about how to solve this issue. It worked for a bit and then stopped. After doing a modprobe I could at least see my network and click on it but it would not connect (I can always see it if I look under the listed wireless networks under VPN Connections, however). I'm thinking, from what I read at least, the issue might be that my wireless switch was on during those first steps. Do I now have to undo the b43 install and do it again? Or is there something else I could try? I just made the switch to Linux yesterday, so I am hesitant at this point to mess with anything on my own. I should note now that it was installed by someone who knows what they are doing, so we are all good on that front.


I try that solution and it's working.

You need to download the B43.zip install, unzip it into a folder named b43, move the folder in /lib/firmware and do a mobprobe

sudo mobprobe b43
