Bug Description

I did a clean install of Jaunty and updated with all the latest updates. I activated the Broadcom B43 wireless driver..

I ran the following commands:
nm-tool
iwconfig
ping -c 4 google.com
ifconfig
netstat -r
sudo lshw -C network
lspci

My results are as follows: (Sorry had a couple of typo's):
