Good Morning everyone:

As I was requested in an earlier message, here are the specifications as
I can find them for my laptop wireless card.

Broadcom integrated card

BCM4306 802.11b/g wireless lan
PCI bus type

This information is being reported to me by the device manager in

To be very honest, I have never used wireless in any species of linux
(penguin, hedgehog or badger :) ) so I am not sure what exactly I am
supposed to do to get it working, all I know right now is that I cannot
find any kind of desktop applet or software control to activate it.

Thanks for the help
