Ubuntu Wireless

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/Driver/bcm43xx/Dapper

I thought I new enough about wireless but this one threw me for a couple hours.

I'm using a Linksys WMP54GS under Ubuntu Dapper.

Run
"sudo apt-get remove ndiswrapper" # No longer need this
"sudo apt-get install bcm43xx-fwcutter"
"sudo /usr/share/bcm43xx-fwcutter/install_bcm43xx_firmware.sh" # Live internet connection is needed

Only problem is that you need the latest Kismet software (not available in Dapper) to run the bcm43xx driver
