I have Ubuntu 10.04 installed into my laptop. The option for enabling wireless network in the network manager is missing.

It comes only when I install my wireless driver(Broadcom STA) when I will be able to use wireless. If I restart my computer after that, I am not able to use the wireless network since 'enable wireless network' option is missing(even though the wireless driver is installed).

Is there any way of getting that option everytime in my network manager?

These two links will solve your problem:

First follow these instructions. Don't reboot. Now, follow the next set of instructions. Now do:

sudo reboot

It should work now.
