To enable Broadcomm wireless driver in Ubuntu 9.10

Posted on: September 8, 2010

I was trying SchoolOS on my laptop which is a derivative of Ubuntu 9.10. However my first problem with it was that my wireless driver was not working. I had known from my previous experience that I would have to probably install b43-fwcutter to get it working. However when I tried to install it, I found out that it was already installed. I still removed the package and installed again but still it did not help. So I googled for any help. I found a forum post where in I was suggested to try the packages given in http://www.broadcom.com/support/802.11/linux_sta.php . I downloaded the 32 bit package and followed the Readme.txt given along with the package. Within 2 minutes my network driver detected the wireless device and I was able to surf using my wireless connection.
