I'm having problems enabling the Broadcom STA proprietary wireless driver.
I was using it previously, since I installed Ubuntu 10.10. I found out recently that this was causing problems with wired connectivity (a problem for another thread) so I switched to the Broadcom B43 wireless driver, which solved that problem. One problem that it raised is that wireless was often quite slow, especially if I had two thing simultaneously downloading. To verify this I testing download something in three areas of the city that I live in, each using a different ISP and the results were the same
So, I want to switch back to the Broadcom STA proprietary wireless driver, but when I activate it it doesn't work. It reads "This driver is activated but not in use".
What can I do to make it work? I've tried adding "wl" to /etc/modules and have followed advice from this thread but it hasn't worked of them have worked
I'm using Ubuntu 10.10. My computer specs: Dell Studio 1555: Pentium Dual Core T4300(2.1GHz,800MHz,1MB), 4096MB 800MHz DDR2 Dual Channel, 512 MB ATI Mobility RADEON HD 4570
