Ubuntu – No Wireless with Dell Inspiron 1501


I have a Dell Inspiron 1501 laptop and I just upgraded to Ubuntu 11.04. However, now my wireless card doesn't work whereas it worked just fine in 10.10 and 10.04. Any ideas? It works fine when I hardwire.

Thanks to the author

He uses two commands

sudo apt-get remove bcmwl-kernel-source
sudo apt-get install firmware-b43-installer

dunno what that does exactly I am also a newbie but I would rather be lucky than good !
