Public bug reported:
Affects: ndiswrapper (Ubuntu)
Priority: (none set)
I updated to Dapper tonight and when I rebooted my wireless network card
was no longer working. I have an Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Pro laptop and I
used to have to press Fn+F12 when Ubuntu began booting to enable the
Broadcom wireless card and a led would light up. The led no longer
lights up, although ndiswrapper reports that the driver is installed and
the hardware is present. I also noticed that the interface name has
changed from wlan0 to eth1.
I am using ndiswrapper 1.11 from the ndiswrapper's sourceforge page and
it worked just fine before I upgraded to Dapper. I use the bcmwl5 driver
and my kernel version is 2.6.15-21-686 from the Dapper apt repository.
I see that others have experienced problems with wireless cards after
upgrading as well, but I can't find any conclusion.
