Broadcom BCM4306 not finding ap's
I have a broadcom bcm4306 and it is not finding ap's, even when I have a windows install and it see them fine.I had an install working with it, but don't remember how I got it.
Ifconfig looks like:
(I'm connected through ppp0)

And iwconfig looks like
When I put it into monitor mode with airmon-ng, it creates mon0. I use that with airodump-ng, and it starts up fine. But never finds any networks. I tried using the guide in the how-to's demonstrating how to use jockey-gtk to make it work, and it says all is good.
lo no wireless extensions.

Re: Broadcom BCM4306 not finding ap's
Never mind, I figured it out. My onboard lan (rj-45 jack) had been disabled because I never used it. I wondered if they were connected somehow, because when I opened my laptop there were a couple of cords spawning from the wireless card. One led to the rj-45 jack. So I don't know exactly how it works, but it does.
