DELL WIRELESS 1520 WIRELESS-N WLAN MINI-CARD LINUX DRIVER DOWNLOAD
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. Are you sure that you activated your Broadcom STA driver?. My problem appears to be that in a machine with both a BCM43xx wireless and BCM44xx wired connection, the driver for the wired connection requires the generic ‘ssb’ module, which grabs the resources needed by both, expecting the final drivers to cooperate with it?

[SOLVED] Issue with Dell Wireless-n Half Mini Card [Archive] – Ubuntu Forums
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.
