I have been using Ubuntu, Xubuntu and Kubuntu a while now. I've just installed Joli OS on an old Dell inspiron 6400. I've read loads of fixes to get the wifi working but to no avail. I have tried the fix with the b43 driver install in terminal, which didn't work, also tried to unintall and reinstall the bcmwl kernel.
