That's weird. I swear when I started this whole thing, I ran 'lspci', and got
that output. I mean, really, where else could I have gotten that? It was pasted
from a terminal, and I don't have any other machines in here with wireless :-)
On the front of the notebook, there a label which says 'Broadcom Wireless', and
underneath that is an antenna symbol, the word 'Wireless', and a switch to turn
the wireless on or off. I of course have tried all this with the indicator in
However, now when I run lsusb, I get this:
Bus 002 Device 003: ID 03f0:171d Hewlett-Packard Wireless (Bluetooth + WLAN)
