Hey all. I just installed BT4 final on my Dell E1505. Pretty old.
In any case, I am running into a bug that use to previously plague ubuntu 8.10ers, but was fixed subsequently and I never saw, and currently don't see when I run newer actual ubuntu releases.

My broadcom 4311, (bcm4311) is supported and works perfectly with no encryption and wep...
However, standard higher level encryptions, eg. wpa and above to not work.

For ref -- lscpi -

Code:
0:1f.3 SMBus: Intel Corporation 82801G (ICH7 Family) SMBus Controller (rev 01)
03:00.0 Ethernet controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4401-B0 100Base-TX (rev 02)
03:01.0 FireWire (IEEE 1394): Ricoh Co Ltd R5C832 IEEE 1394 Controller

0b:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4311 802.11b/g WLAN (rev 01)

On WICD, association with these wpa/wpa2 nodes simply doesn't work, and dmesg throws:

If this were ubuntu, I would have no issues fixing... (I think the kernel and bcm drivers need to be updated) but since I have no Backtrack experience, I don't want to screw up the integration that has built for BCM drivers buy the Backtrack creators.

Apt-get update doesn't do anything either as this isn't really a backtrack update.... per-se

Any thoughts?
