HOWTO : Ubuntu 9.10 on HP Mini 110 Netbook

HP Mini 110 Netbook is using Broadcom 4312 Wifi card (bcm4312). However, Ubuntu 9.10 cannot recognize the hardware. You should do something on it.

The tutorial also suits for bcm4311, 4321 and 4322 hardware.

Install the driver
sudo apt-get remove b43xx-fwcutter
sudo apt-get install bcmwl-kernel-source

Append "wl" to the following file.
sudo nano /etc/modules


Configure the module
sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/wl

Add the following line.
install wl modprobe -r b43 b44 b43legacy ssb; modprobe --ignore-install wl $CMDLINE_OPTS; modprobe ssb; modprobe b44;

Reboot your system.

That's all. See you!
