Hi peeps...

tried the noob forums but no joy....

Has anyone managed to get the Broadcom 4310 usb pci wifi card (with on off switch on the side of the laptop) to work yet????

even if i get a yes or no answer to start with it'll be a plus!!!

It's a dell Inspiron 1525 btw....

Look in System, Preferences, Hardware Information.

That tells you what you lappy is using.

Probably be 3945 but check. 3945 works out of the box for me but no light comes on.......cant recognize whether the kill switch is on or not but wifi works.
