I installed Ubuntu 10.10 on my Dell Inspiron 1521 and the LAN/Ethernet card was working perfectly but Ubuntu was displaying a message about not installing the Wireless drivers because it was restricted or something along that line.
I then went to the Synaptic Package Manager, searched for all Broadcom packages and installed them. So far so good.
I restarted my computer and to my surprise, my wireless works but my lan isn't! What the heck could be wrong?
I then uninstalled/removed all the packages I installed earlier hoping my ethernet would start working again but hey, nothing changed. My wireless card works and the ethernet still doesn't.
Is there any way of getting this fixed?
I checked and found my network devices were:
- Broadcom Corporation BCM4401-B0 100Base-TX (rev 02)
- Broadcom Corporation BCM4311 802.11b/g WLAN (rev 01)
