Thread: Wireless Card not connected

  1. #1

    Default Wireless Card not connected

    My laptop's wireless card is being read but it says it is not connected. when i open yast network settings it says ..BCM4318 [AirForce One 54g] 802.11g Wireless LAN Controller (Not Connected).. I also press the switch on my laptop to turn the card on and off and the light never comes on. I am just wondering how to connect the card so i can connect to a wireless signal. Hope that was enough info.

    Please help
