A while back (and for some time) I used this forum post at UbuntuForums.org to get the Broadcom wireless on my Dell Inspiron 1521 working properly. Now, a better method has been made available here and I want to clean out the junk left by my attempt at using the old NDISwrapper method.

I'm thinking i need to remove the last line of /etc/modules and /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist ... There's probably more though, like sudo make uninstall (ndiswrapper).

Any thoughts?

Check out this website Unstall NDISwrapper. The main thing to make sure is the ndiswrapper module is not loading at boot and the /etc/ndiswrapper directory if clean or removed.

Thanks so much! I'll be trying it out ASAP, as it's not my main computer, I'm not on it very often. –  blong Jan 20 '12 at 21:40
