Setting Broadcom Wireless Device in Kubuntu in detail part 2

So, your wireless device is working right now. But, how do you know it’s working properly? We just set it up right?. Don’t worry, in this part we’ll learn how to test it. First, make sure you have an access point that’s working fine. Or to make thing easier, go to public hotspot on your town. Don’t have in your town? Auw, that’s terrible. Anyway, I’m assuming you are currently on public hotspot right now. And I also assume you are using Kubuntu (specifically [but not important] 7.04).

Here’s how we test it :
1. Make sure you have install kdenetwork package. Not sure? Well, maybe I have to write another tutorial for this. But for now just check if you have wlassistant installed. If it’s present, then start it. If in the previous step you have do it right, you should see a list of available access point.
2. Select one of it and you’ll be given wizard form to fill detailed connection setting for this AP.
3. No more step here, you’ve connect into network.

If you still have problem, just ask it by giving full information on what you’ve done and what’s the problem also include any output you have into ubuntu forum.
