Well, I can't even connect to the network. When I try to connect I just get an error message that says that the configuration failed for wlan0. When I logged onto the network on windows it told me to log in with username and password before I was fully connected, just like when you connect to a WEP or WPA encrypted network.

The card you've got there?
Code:
lspci -nn | grep -i network

03:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Broadcom Corporation BCM43224 802.11a/b/g/n [14e4:0576] (rev 01)

But since I've been connected with this hardware (not software) to the network before, this shouldn't be a problem, or am I missing something?

Well, your chipset appears supported: Name/PCI Device ID = BCM43224/0x0576

*No- NOT compiled for your ride..

Whether it's been prepped for Slacko 5.4 I can't answer.

Open a terminal and type: lsmod | grep brcm80211

Is she listed?

If no one answers, maybe give that Dpup a spin..

Who you're really waiting on are the folks with the know-how..

I don't get any output, I just return to bash, or what it's called (I'm new to the terminal stuff too, sorry).

What if you first: modprobe brcm80211

.. then run lsmod?

How about (L)lsmod by itself?

Throw it between code tags..

# modprobe brcm80211
FATAL: Module brcm80211 not found.


Code:
# lsmod | grep brcm80211
(Still no output)

Code:
# lsmod

Maybe it's called something different in Slacko- I'm not the expert.

brcmutil, mac80211, brcmsmac.. all likely candidates..

Ask an admin/mod to have your thread moved here.. and maybe modify your title to read like what follows..

"How to connect Slacko 5.4 to school 802.1x network using Broadcom BCM43224 wireless?"
