wireless problem (bcm 43xx)

Asked by Rooster Cogburn on 2008-03-03

Hi,

I installed bcm43xx firmware via the restricted drivers manager, and now I can see the wireless networks on knetworkmanager.

I was able to connect to a network but wasn't able to actually use the internet at first, now I can't even connect to the network.

I don't understand what's wrong. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
