What's the problem with wifi?

my understanding is that they no longer use the bcm43xx driver .In the newer kernels it is a b43 driver thus you need the b43-fwcutter instead. I tried it briefly but never got it working, had alpha 4 and it was so buggy that wifi was the least of my worries. Go here and have a read.b43 has a new codebase and cryto which probably translates into a lot of swearing for us . ;) Hope some of this helps you as this site helped me switch from the dreaded winwoes.

Watch out for the new update with the new Kernel, it'll break the audio on the Dell 1501.

For now I reinstalled 7.10.

oh and EnvyNG (for 8.04) works perfectly.
