I recently purchased a Dell Inspiron which came with the same wireless network card. The command “echo” does exactly what it’s name implies, it “echoes” prints whatever you put after it in the commandline. In windows, pushing the button turns the wireless card on or off. If you can’t manage to connect, I’d try with an unsecured network first, as paperdiesel suggests, then turn all the security measures back on one by one to make sure they all work. There have been some “native” drivers around for quite a while. If it does then you are all set. I am beginning to suspect there is a software command needed to activate it.

I wanted to let anyone with a Vostro to know that this guide works if you use the R First when I got to the bottom of the howto I read that I needed to check the dell support page wlsn make sure I had the right driver, turns out the one listed here works fine on my I’ve attached a screenshot of what it should look like below.

Dell wireless (BCM) Ubuntu no wireless icon in unity – Ask Ubuntu

That’s my whole terminal after doing everything you said. After weeks tearing my hair out and about to give up on Gutsy completely, I now have working wireless on my HP dv! Ask Ubuntu works best with JavaScript enabled. Sorry for such a long post.


Dell WLAN Wireless Yh774 Mini PCI E Card WiFi DW 1390 Broadcom 1525 D630 D820

This file contains the names of kernel modules that should be loaded at boot time, one per line. And why is that?

If it does then everything is working fine! How can I set wifi-radar so It connects to router2 network with my IPs and hex key open. So once you blacklist bcm43xx the native module that let’s it see your card to start off with and reboot it shouldn’t see your card anymore. Alright, I don’t have that specific model of laptop, but I do have that exact same card.

Are there any unexpected errors? I will turn it back on again – I had to do that when my son got his new laptop with Vista. Until then, I’ll stick to windows again. Sign up using Facebook. This thread, however, primarily deals with getting the wireless NICs recognized by linux.

Or else, if you ran the command as it is directed in the opening post, whatever directory ccorp R It’s entirely possible that you have a module left over that you compiled yourself. You’ll just need to get all the files you’ll need first. It worked just great!

Yes there is a wireless button and when connected it lights up blue. I tried the code and here is the result pcr pcr-laptop So yes you’ll still be able to see the networks and connect to them, just not to their full potential. Thanks for jumping in with help fooman. Once you’ve added those lines, save the file and quit.


On the right side of the page just below the yellow poll box, there’s a link there that says “search this thread”. I guess I’m being a curmudgeon, but I don’t get it when people say things like that. Try with this driver and see what happens, but Mini-pfi reasonably sure it would work with the driver in the OP and possibly not with a newer one.

Finally I’m on-line wirelessly!

If there aren’t any wireless 3190 to detect then it won’t detect any. Is there any partitular reason you’ve installed bcmwl6 in place of bcmwl5?

If you follow the how-to, paperdiesel advises that you should blacklist minii-pci and then reboot. But don’t worry, every so often some genius drops in this thread and posts a link to the native driver how-to like it’s the cure for cancer. Interface doesn’t support scanning. I think that should work.
