Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

I was just wondering if there's a free (as in free speech) wifi card that actually works with Ubuntu that I can buy that would replace my Broadcom BCM3412 card.

Extra Info: Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g LP-PHY (rev 01)

It's for a Dell Inspiron 1545. I believe I read somewhere something like it's a half card? if that means anything? I guess I'm asking what Wireless cards are around that have free (as in free speech) drivers, and can I swap them with my annoying proprietary driver'd one. Thanks!
