Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu During my 8 years of Linux on and off usage I have tried more distros than I have chocolate bars. Each one of my previous encounters meant that I had to spend at least 2 days configuring before I have a desktop that I was somewhat comfortable with. With Ubuntu Feisty Fawn's latest test beta --for the first time ever-- this was not the case. I was up and running with all the niceties I wanted within 2 hours.

Eugenia,

Does lspci tell you the exact broadcom chipset used?

The 4318 still has substantial problems even with 2.6.20, though some previous models received some pretty substantial fixes in that release. The fix for the 4318 is not a trivial one, apparently, but they are working on it. (Something to do with "power transmission", I think.)

I've spent many an hour trying to get my 4318 stable using the bcm43xx driver, just as a matter of principle, but with very limited success.

The standard advice is still to just use ndiswrapper for now.

It is a BCM45xx one I think.
