Wireless driver problem

I got a new compaq presario v6608au and its specs are -- 1 GB RAM, 160HDD,AMD TURIN 64X2 PROCESSOR, NVIDIA MCP67 chipset, BROADCOM 94311 wireless card and pre-installed windows vista Home Basic.
I installed Ubuntu 7.10 on dual boot and I had the problem with wireless driver and Iam unable to access any wireless networks. I tried to install windows drivers using NDISWrapper but the XP driver that I downloaded was a .exe file and so Iam unable to extract it to find the .INF file. Can you suggest me what to do????

I am currently using Linux on a Compaq C500 with a Broadcom wireless adapter. Sounds like your wireless adapter is on of the ones that uses the b43 module like mine.

Aside from using the correct module, you also need a firmware image. Instructions can be found at: http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drivers/b43

Hope this helps and good luck with Linux! Once you fully switch to Linux you'll never go back to crappy M$ products!

Wireless network disconnection sometimes


The Toshiba Satellite A210 has a built in wireless adapter - at least all of the ones I did a quick check on the specs. If yours has a built in wireless why are you using an adapter??? Presuming you have a good reason - have you gone in and disabled the built in wireless? They could be conflicting. Second I would use Network Magic software to setup your home network. I struggled many hours and could not get everything to work the way I wanted - all problems with home network fixed in minutes with Network Magic. I do not work for them or anything but I will tell you it is the best software money I have ever spent - and I have been around since 10MB was a dream hard drive.
