Default Trouble getting wireless to work on 11z with Ubuntu - 12-23-2009, 05:05 PM

Hi folks!

I'm having the hardest time here trying to get the wireless to work on my 11z. Under windows this was supposed to be the broadcom dw1520 (which in windows works just fine).

I've tried following several sets of instructions to enabled wireless in Ubuntu 9.10 but I haven't been able to get anything. When I run 'lspci' I get:

Network Controller: Broadcom Corporation device 4353 (rev 01)

I then tried following a set of instructions from here:

I also tried other instructions and haven't been able to get it to work. Can anyone who's running Ubuntu 9.10 (or similar) and has the 1520 wireless card lend me a hand?

Thank you!
