  1. Thank you – the steps above work for a Mac Pro with broadcom airport as well.

    Btw, you have a ginormous spam comment above.

  2. I have the driver installed on my vostro 1310, and i can see wireless networks. The only problem is that the network manager does not accept my network key, it is the right key but it just doesn’t connect and keeps on asking for it.

    The restricted driver manager does not recognize there is a driver either. Only ndiswrapper does.

    Thanks in advance for your help!

  3. Thanks so much for this. Your driver actually seems to be what worked for me. All the other steps in this process pretty much mirror any other tutorial. I think the part that matters is what driver I use with ndiswrapper.

  4. Thanks a bunch!!!!!!!
    I have one that just a bit different than the model you were talkin about but reading your blog and and others’ comments then I think now Im fine 🙂
    By the way is there any way to break through any secured network like 2wire. for example when they ask for a password, how do I by-pass that!!!!

  5. Hi, could somebody tell which files I have to blacklist?

    Or help me with this:
    root@ubuntu:/home/mitko# sudo ndiswrapper -l
    Gave me:
    WARNING: /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist line 1: ignoring bad line starting with ‘nblacklist’
    bcmwl5 : driver installed
    device (14E4:4328) present (alternate driver: ssb)
