DELL WIRELESS 1520 WIRELESS-N WLAN MINI-CARD LINUX DRIVER DOWNLOAD

Also a lsmod grep “wlan” search comes up with nothing

After some investigation, I found that the broadcom drivers aren’t actually being loaded properly I have used Backtrack in the past, however I prefer the “emptiness” of a fresh, proper Ubuntu install, so I can configure it how I want from the start, without having to re-configure Backtrack and risk breaking some of the installed software, most of which falls outside what I usually have to use.
