So I installed Ubutnu 12.04 on my early 2011 macbook pro and the known problem of getting the braodcom wifi to work is not going away. I have tried several online tips but none is working.
I then tried to use Edimax wifi usb dongle (link here) but this is always very unreliable and I sometimes can and sometimes can not connect and even if I connect, it freezes too often.
I can see the the driver for Edimax is getting picked up by the kernel but it does not work reliably.
Am I doing something wrong with the Edimax? Do you know any wifi dongle that work reliably with ubuntu 12.04?
