broadcom 4318, hp dv8000, on ubuntu jautny

i don’t know why it started working.

i did some combination of the following things:

rmmod ndiswrapper
modprobe b43
iwconfig wlan0 ap any
iwconfig wlan0 rate 11M
dhcpcd wlan0

and the /etc/network/interfaces file looked like this:

iface wlan0 inet dhcp
wireless-essid xxxxx
wireless-key xxxxx
auto wlan0

edit: install the open-source driver from scratch, fwcutter and all, then load the module. internet will magically start working even though ubuntu’s network manager refuses to believe theis.
