Have read a lot and found nothing helpful, for this particular. Working on a different CPU than the one that I'm typing on here with.
Inspiron 1750- just fresh installed ringtail. Signal switch turns on bluetooth only.
rfkill list gives nothing unless bluetooth is on then it lists bluetooth.
sudo ifconfig wlan0 up;iwconfig wlan0: ERROR while getting interface flags: no such device. no wireless extensions for eth0, lo, and sit0. sudo lshw -c network *-network description: Network controller. product: BCM4312 802.11/g LP-PHY. vendor: Broadcom Corporation physical id:0 bus info: pci@0000:0c:00.0 version: 01 width: 64 bits clock: 33MHz capabilities: pm msi pciexpress bus_master cap_list configuration: driver=b43-pci-bridge latency=0 resources: irq:17 memory:f69fc000-f69fffff
Did this from what I've read so far... every thing else I've read is basically more of the same, or how to get get it with a connection. Only problem, the computer this is for has no wall plug to hard wire a connection to. No one uses them so they cut the connection.
