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

I've installed ubuntu 11.10 on my laptop (Compaq Presario V6000), which has BCM4311 Wireless Adapter, on the installation screen, it was showing firmware not ready in the network menu, but when I installed with install third-party software, the Enable Wireless option completely disappeared in the menu.

I am using Wireless Ad-hoc to share my PC's connection, because my ISP doesn't allow more than one computer. So I can't connect via ethernet to download system updates.

Any solutions?

I think you might get better luck by providing /var/log/syslog. –  Andrejs Cainikovs Dec 17 '11 at 14:01

BTW some command (i don't remember) lists the wireless network as *-network UNCLAIMED –  Shvelo Dec 17 '11 at 14:31
