I've read hundreds of different threads regarding the friggin' 43xx wireless problems. I had an hp laptop I managed to make work with a thread on here, but this ACER laptop i just picked up today is a little more difficult. I'm running with 512MB ram until the new RAM cardsget here next week, but it's hanging abnormally long. According to the ubuntu 8.04 tutorial on Hardy (which M5 main is built on), I can just go into 'Hardware Drivers' and click to enable the Broadcom B43 wireless driver. I click to enable it, and the software box comes up, but it just freezes there.
I get another box to pop up that reads:
( ) Fetch and extract firmware?
I try to click the box next to that question to say yes, and then continue, but nothing happens...it just hangs.
Is there a problem with my system, or is there another way to do this? I've tried ndiswrapper, and I always end up with the same ssb driver being in use, which won't work for me.
Anyone have any idea?
BCM4318 Rev 02 is my card.
