    I have a Gateway m320. I cannot get my broadcom wirless adapter to work. When i re-installed the driver , I looked in device manager and saw an "!" next to the broadcom device. What could be the problem?

    the problem is likely to be the wrong driver - check the chipset... this is a very common wifi chip so you should be able to get it easily, however the M$ driver side tends to be more of a problem than the Linux one... so if you feel like you want to try it anyway then feel free to go to a Linux OS and use Ndiswrapper to resolve your problems.. (this last is kidding really!)
