Hi,

Please first connect your network card to the wireless router using a LAN cable.

Then please follow this procedure:

Step 1: Open Terminal from "Applications->Accessories->
Terminal"

Step 2: Run the following commands (copy-paste each line below to the Terminal then hit <enter> after each line)

sudo iwlist scanning
nm-tool
iwconfig
ifconfig
sudo lshw -C network
lspci -nn
lsusb
uname -a
dmesg | grep ound
dmesg | grep illswitch

Step 3: Post results (cut/paste terminal output from each command) here

Regards,

Mark

Before you look at this I just want you to know that the network card is built in to the laptop and The wireless router i plugged into is not the only wireless router I will be connecting to.

Thanks for replying quick. The following info is what you asked for:

Hello cr125f150ba,

you official have the most difficult username to remember.

while your in the terminal typing all those commands for mark, I've got one more to add:

lsb_release -a

that will tell us what ubuntu release your using.

No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description: Ubuntu 8.04
Release: 8.04
Codename: Hardy

Hi,

The error "b43-phy0 ERROR: Firmware file "b43/ucode5.fw" not found or load failed" should mean that b43-fwcutter is not installed yet on your pc. And that means that the Broadcom firmware for your wireless card is not loaded or installed yet.

Please proceed with the following commands:

sudo aptitude update
sudo aptitude install b43-fwcutter

b43-fwcutter exists in the Ubuntu repositories, but you will need a working Internet connection in Ubuntu in order to locate it and install it.

The only way to do that - in your case - is to connect the pc to the wireless router using a LAN cable, instead of using wireless.

If this does not work, I recommend installing Ubuntu 8.10 (has better wireless support) from a LiveCD session and then installing b43-fwcutter, while having a wired connection to the router.

Regards,

Mark
