    Default Broadcom help please

    hey guys,
    I have a internal adapter(broadcom 4322 Dualband) and am having alot of trouble getting it to work with anything. It seems like BT4R2 doesnt even know its there. I tried ifconfig(showed me eth0 and lo) and iwconfig(no wireless extensions on either). I also tried enabling it in many ways(through cmd/menus). I then tried to install the wl. driver, but It didnt go well.. any help is really appreciated.
    thanks,
    -rip


    EDITk so I can narrow it down to one problem now.... So, when i try to connect to my unsecured network with wicd on wlan0 with wg111v3. Wicd hangs at "obtaining IP address" and eventually spits out the error: "Connection failed:Unable to get IP address."

    Can you provide some specific details? What commands did you try, what errors did you get, what tutorials did you follow, what did you do in order to attempt to fix this, etc.

    Also are you running it in a VM or native?
    As Lupin said, for more output we will need more input.

    ive had the same issues dealing with the Bc=Broad as well.

    BT doesnt even see it. I'm thinking that i should just get a usb wirless card. Do you guys think that will work?

    ok so I can narrow it down to one problem now.... So, when i try to connect to my unsecured network with wicd on wlan0 with wg111v3. Wicd hangs at "obtaining IP address" and eventually spits out the error: "Connection failed:Unable to get IP address." I am also updating my first post with this information.
    Thanks guys
